THE NAKED PILGRIM – Garnacha ROSÉ 2017 – Rioja
Denominación de Origen Calificada: DOC Rioja
The grapes were selected from three young parcels of Garnacha vines, with an average age of 19 years. The vineyards are situated in La Rioja Alta, at an altitude of 600m where the mild Atlantic climate prevails.
Mainly ferrous-clay soils with a well-balanced structure. Slightly alkaline, with poor organic content and moderate water availability.
100% Garnacha Tinta
In keeping with the Cordovín style, our Rosé is made exclusively with the free-run must of our hand-picked Garnacha Tinta grapes. In this way, the skin contact is just long enough to enable the wine to take on a beautifully delicate salmon-pink / cherry-blossom hue. Temperatures are kept extra-cool during fermentation to help preserve and develop the natural aroma and flavour of the young wine. The wine is stored in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and bottled to order.
Alc. by Vol.: 12.5% Total Acidity: 6.0 g/l. Total Sugars: 5.0 g/l.
Clear glass Burgundy-style bottle with screwcap closure.
This delicately-coloured Rosé is born of the free-run juice of our Garnacha grapes and offers wonderfully subtle notes of hedgerow berries and flora. The round and fleshy feel on the palate is
accompanied by ripe summer fruits and a crisp, dry finish. A wellchilled glass of The Naked Pilgrim is delicious on its own and will bring out the best in summer salads, grilled chicken and shellfish.
The Naked Pilgrim is an ideal accompaniment to all al fresco dining and brings out the best in salads, light pasta dishes and barbecued monkfish. The beautifully delicate flavours, crisp acidity and pleasant finish of a well-chilled glass also make it perfect for enjoying on its own
The world-famous Camino de Santiago passes through the heart of La Rioja Alta, skimming our vineyards as it winds its way up to Santiago de Compostela. Now, through the traditional Spanish game of recortables, in which players use cut-outs of essential kit to dress The Naked Pilgrim, our wine pays homage to all those who have embarked on this legendary pilgrimage.
