D.O. Valdepeñas / Los Molinos
Los Molinos Rosé
Don Quixote battled the giants that turned out to be windmills, and that currently compose the most typical image of La Mancha in history books. The giants were baptized with the names of Burleta, Infante and Sardinero. Los Molinos Rosé is as delicate and fresh wine as a white, but with the structure of a good red.
Valdepeñas takes its name from the ancient city by the same name, that lies on a sun-baked river valley dotted by small rocky formations (Val-de-peñas – Valley of Rocks). Located in the South of Castilla-La Mancha in central Spain. The area is almost entirely encircled by both La Mancha Denominación de Origen on the North border and Andalusia on its Southern limits. It experiences extreme weather conditions, with temperatures reaching up to over 40 ºC in the summer and dropping to as low as -10 ºC in the winter. The future of this Denominación de Origen lays with its red wines made from Tempranillo; a grape variety that enjoys the ability to age well as crianza, reserva and gran reserva.
A characteristic rosé: light, clean, fresh and fruity. It maintains Tempranillo’s original aromas of red fruits. It has a well-balanced palate, refreshing and with a long-lasting finish.
Ideal for seafood, fish dishes and soups.
The grapes are harvested in September. This wine is elaborated according to traditional rosé methods and a careful control of every phase of the process. The grapes undergo maceration for a short period of 4 to 6 hours at low temperature. Then, the fermentation takes place at 15 - 17 oC to obtain the characteristic colour and aromas of the rosé wines from this region.
