Traslanzas, Cigales Rosado, 2018

Cigales DOP, Spain

Located in Mucientes, Valladolid, about 800 meters above sea level, Traslanzas soils are composed of sand, limestone and clay. Cigales is a region producing 64% rosado (very cool), but much of it is made in a unique way by co-fermenting white and red grapes - Tempranillo (red) and Albillo Mayor (white). This results in a robust light red rosado packed with flavours of strawberry and raspberry with hints of ripe stone fruit and menthol notes. 
Fruity + fresh with a seductive texture and volume. Complex, pleasant and still offering delicate aromatics with a persistent, long finish.
Serve well chilled by the poolside or alongside seafood paella, risotto with saffron and spot prawns, cured meats like jamon and medium Spanish cheeses.
