Our Massanella refined and almost perfected! Made to beautify your summer moments under the sun! The ideal mood-booster...
This vintage we again played a bit around with our beloved rosé wine...
The Grenache for this was harvested on August 18th and 19th, around 12 days earlier then the Grenache for the reds. Set to cool down over night, hand-sorted, de-stemmed and crushed and pressed very slowly in order to bleed of just enough color and aroma compounds from the skins.
After the fermentation was over and the wine racked, we needed to get our hands dirty and do a master blending session here. The Grenache vinified as rosé on it's own very simply did not express the usual beauty of our rosé so we got creative!
First we decided to top up with some Grenache vinified as red and finally added some slightly fruitier Manto Negro vinified as rosé plus a dash of Sauvignon Blanc and that brought out the magic!
How to best enjoy 2021 Massanella
Tasting note written by Marie on April 17th 2022
Delicate and charming nose with lots of strawberry, melon, ripe lime and apple blossom. Opens up with apple and crunchy japanese pear. This really smells of spring!
Deliciously pure and elegant on the palate with the same charming fruit as in the nose. This rosé has everything, and its all bound together in perfect harmony with nothing disturbing its precise focus and joyful personality. This is a smooth as silk and as pure as can be.
A finessedriven and highly refined Massanella with less power and but much more intellect than last year!
