Rosé wine, 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Tintilla de Rota. IGP Cádiz.
A full declaration of love. A Cabernte Sauvignon rosé made in Cádiz, which in itself is hard to believe, in addition to a perfect blend with the silky and fresh Tintilla. If this is not love, what will it be?.
The grapes come from 4 hectares of brown Albariza. Manual harvest and maximum selection in the vineyard and in the winery.
As it is a tear rose, after pressing, the must is placed in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 15ºC. During alcoholic fermentation, the temperature is lowered to 12ºC for about 6 weeks. Then the wine is transferred to another tank, taking advantage of the lees that are still in suspension in the wine, and it is hermetically sealed. It is bottled without being subjected to any treatment.
Pale pink color with good tears and unctuousness, called as onion skin. The nose is elegant, intense, fresh and complex, with attractive aromas reminiscent of strawberries, green apples and currants. On the palate it is fresh, silky and balanced. Correct acidity and good persistence. Easy to drink wine in which the balsamic and saline aromas return.
Consumption temperature between 10 and 12 ºC. Open at least one hour before consumption. A wine that surprises, that makes you enjoy a lot, different and with an impressive gastronomic versatility: it goes well with everything. It is also ecological, it only remains to enjoy it.
Bodega Forlong, In 2014 Forlong was born from the hand of two wine lovers who have put their body and soul into the production of fully artisanal and organic wines. In the Puerto de Santa María (Cádiz), there is the estate, known as “El olivar de Forlón”, in which the winery is located, with 11 hectares of own vineyards carefully cultivated following ecological and biodynamic techniques.
At Forlong they work following a philosophy of respect for the environment, recovering ancient winemaking techniques. They seek to follow the ancient tradition of viticulture in Jerez, but developing something different.
