Nas del Gegant Rosé
Origin: Catalonia, Spain
Blend*: garnatxa (grenache), sumoll, samso (carignan), cabernet franc, merlot
This is the Saignee (bleeding) method from the Nas Del Gegant red. This wine is now made entirely in giant clay amphoras that are almost 100 years old.
The rose spends 6 hours macerating with the skins before it is bled off (via a tiny tube in the base of the amphora. No pumping) into cement tanks and stainless steel. This is not a light Provencal Rose designed for summer drinking - hence its’ July release date - but has the same ease of drinking as these styles of wine.
