Tasting Notes

The delicate pale peach color and complex flavors of the 2021 Tinto Rey Rosé are the result of 100% co-fermentation of Tempranillo, Tannat and Verdejo. Beautiful, fresh fruit-salad aromas lead to full flavors of peach, vanilla cream, honeydew and ambrosia. This pretty Rosé is bright, crisp and refreshing with a bit of stone-fruit sweetness that adds viscosity and a nice counterpoint to the zesty notes. The flavors linger in the finish and set up the palate for another delicious sip.

Production Notes

Tinto Rey means Red King and is the name of our Spanish-centric wine brand. The Dunnigan Hills appellation is uniquely suited for grapes that thrive in a Mediterranean climate. Warm days, gravelly soil, little rainfall; these are ideal conditions for Tempranillo, Tannat, Graciano and Verdejo. The spicy, full-flavored Tinto Rey wines truly showcase the distinctive terroir of our vineyards.

Winemaker Notes

The 2021 Tinto Rey Rosé is a blend of Matchbook Estate Grown Tempranillo, Tannat and Verdejo. This wine is unique because it was 100% co-fermented, meaning all three varietals were crushed and fermented together for better flavor integration. Our winemakers cold fermented (50°F) the 2021 Rosé in stainless steel tanks to preserve the just-picked fresh fruit flavors. The fermentation was arrested at .5% residual sugar to retain a touch of the natural sweetness of the grapes and add viscosity. A wonderfully crisp and refreshing wine that delivers loads of flavor.

Pairings

This bright, lively Estate Bottled Rosé is delicious year-round as an aperitif and has enough body to pair with shellfish or roasted poultry.
