Viñedos Real Rubio Rosado 2012

  • Bright, pale pink colour over a soft strawberry base. The bright clarity and liveliness of the wine shows it was made slowly and carefully, reveals its youthfulness and conveys exactly what the winery wants to achieve: modernity and elegance, taking the grape from the vine to the bottle. Intense yet discreet floral aromas, and sharp red berries such as strawberries, raspberries and redcurrants. A soft, elegant mouth feel, long and with wrap around acidity and excellent minerality.

    The story of Viñedos Real Rubio began over one hundred years ago at the hands of their great grandparents, who began grape growing in the area around Monte Yerga, cultivating vines at a height of between 400 and 500 metres.

    To that generous legacy, Mari Luz and Javier, together with their children, have brought their own personal determination to preserve and widen it, through a family project leading to the creation of our winery, Viñedos Real Rubio, in 2004.

    Harvest Harvested in the early morning so as to avoid the midday heat which can lead to premature fermentation of the grapes. Picked by hand from the stems and taken straight to stainless steel vats at cool temperatures for cold maceration with the skins prior to fermentation.
    Winemaking The rosé must is bled off at just the right moment to achieve the desired colour and aromas. Controlled fermentation at between 13ºC and 17ºC in order to preserve the fruit aromas.
