Carlos Serres

 

Rosado Reserva

Variety
60% Mazuelo y 40% Tempranillo.
Vineyards
Vineyards: we all know Rioja wine regulations today. Young, Crianza, Reserva and Gran Reserva wines have come together and built that proprietary style which consumers identify as Rioja. Following the Rioja example, many wine regions have adopted these labels or categories for their wines with the sole purpose of setting this classification in the mind of consumers. It is also true that, less than fifty years ago, wineries, particularly historical eighteenth-century firms like Carlos Serres, used a different nomenclature to reflect the character of their wines and the length of their stay in the winery.
Harvest
Manual, in small boxes, on 16 October, both varieties.
Winemaking
Vinified following traditional free-run methods. The grape juice obtained from crushing the grapes remains in contact with the skins for four to six hours at a temperature of 8 °C. After maceration, the free-run must is placed in another tank where it partially ferments at a controlled temperature of 14-16 °C. Fermentation concludes in French oak barrels.
Ageing
It was aged for 536 days in French oak barrels and then refined for more than 500 days in the bottle, to achieve greater complexity.
Tasting notes
The colour denotes the passage of time, the pink hues are invaded by some shades of orange and yellow, yet maintaining a great personality. The nose reveals a lively wine, full of complexity, with cocoa accompanying ripe, red fruit, still wild. In the mouth it is oily and powerful, with a liveliness and freshness that will keep it frozen in time. A wine born to age.
Food Pairing
A versatile, culinary wine, which can accompany almost anything, although it can also be fully enjoyed by itself, in good company.
