Viento Aliseo Rosado 2015

An importers vintage clearance makes it an excellent value Rosé.

Beautifully perfumed rose from Spain will transport you back to when the days were hot and the nights long. Organic and bio-dynamically farmed, the grapes were taken from the estate vineyards, giving the winemakers at Dominio de Punctum full control over the process. On the nose, strawberries and raspberries explode with freshness and the palate screams of floral redcurrants. There’s enough acidity that it finishes dry – enjoy with any seafood or simply on its own!

Situated in the town of Las Pedroñeras in the north of La Mancha, Spain’s largest wine region, halfway between Valencia and Madrid. Founded by the Fernandez family the estate currently comprises over 200 hectares of vineyards which means they they can operate on an economy of scale that provides an impressive quality/price ratio. At 750 metres above sea level on sandy loam soils rich in limestone they produce pure, intensely flavoured wines with no need for chemical fertilizers or pesticides and are 100% organically certified.  Biodynamic agriculture is yet another step forward from organic cultivation. Working closely with the ecosystem, soil and respecting the natural life cycle of the vines throughout the year to achieve the highest quality grapes and wine. The modern winery is situated next to the vineyard to minimalize handling and preserve freshness and quality. With more than 200 hectares of family-owned vineyards they operate on an economy of scale that provides an impressive quality/price ratio. Made 100% from the native Valencian grape variety Bobal, known for producing soft, fruity, fresh-acid wines, perfect for the production of Rosado. Harvested at night to preserve freshness and cold-macerated before fermentation to enhance natural colour and fruit intensity.

Organic, biodynamically crafted rosé or ‘rosado’ here from the folk at Dominio De Punctum in Spain’s La Mancha region.  Made from 100% bobal grapes (the name derives from ‘bovale’ after the bull’s head shape of the bunches).  Pale, ballet shoe pink and showing strawberry shortcake and pink peppercorn aromas, it’s got a saucy, slightly salty side that cuddles up to the berry and rosehip flavours.

Elegant and crisp dry, this is delicately fragrant on the nose showing watermelon, apple, lemon peel and nectarine aromas. The palate delivers vibrant fruit notes together with fine texture and juicy acidity, finishing persistent and attractively dry.
