Aquitania Rosé is a wine made from the same Lazuli and Aquitania Cabernet barracks.
This is a wine made with the bleeding technique where only the grape juice is left in contact with the skins for a few hours to obtain that salmon color and very fresh aromas of the two varieties that make it up.
This is a wine to drink cold, and hopefully no more than two years after its harvest.
Aquitania Rosé is the only wine in all of our lines in which we use a screw cap in order to better preserve the aromas and not have the micro-oxygenation that natural corks provide.
Characteristics of the vintage: The 2019 vintage was quite normal for the Peñalolén vineyards as it matured slowly and at low temperatures that gave very soft tannins and great complexity in the wine.
Characteristics of the vineyards: The Peñalolén vineyards are in the foothills of the Andes mountain range at 750 meters high. These are a mixture of alluvial and colluvial soils with a clayey silt. This mixture allows a very good drainage of the waters, which allows a very good maturity of tannins. The irrigation of these vineyards is essential and is done with water from the Maipo River. A drop-by-drop system is used and supplemented, if necessary, by furrows. The plants of these vineyards are of mass origin in free standing planted in the years 1990 and 1991, with a density of 4,200 plants per hectare. The yield is 5,500 kgs / ha.
Its intense aroma recalls the perfume of acidic fruits such as cherries, mixed with ripe strawberries. In the mouth, it presents a great balance between alcohol and acidity, which provides an adequate freshness that accompanied by its slightly sweet flavor, gives it breadth and fruity persistence.
