Cortes de Cima Rosé

Crafted from pressing and fermenting early picked Aragonez (Tempranillo) and Merlot together, it is all about delicacy and lightness.

Vintage 2016

2016 vintage was marked by atypical weather. A warm and dry winter preceded a cold, wet spring. Summer was hot and dry, allowing for undisturbed ripening.
