Mesta is a range of organically and sustainably grown single varietal wines, which stylishly showcase the Spanish wine revolution under the symbol of the Mesta. Mesta was a powerful alliance of sheep ranchers in medieval Castile, who controlled the cañadas: the traditional rights of way for migrating sheep. To this day the cañadas are protected from being blocked or built upon, a reminder of ancient rights and a model of coexistence with nature. This modern range, from the fashionable DO Uclés in central Castile, offers wines of great purity and varietal typicity.A versatile wine which accompanies spicy dishes perfectly, Asian curries, seafood risotto or a light salad with grilled prawns. Rosé wines are in fashion not just in the summer but also throughout the year, and this beautiful Mesta Rosé is a serious contender in the Rosé world. Especially at this price!!!
Mesta Rosé Organic
Tasting Notes from Pinto Wines
|Colour||Pale strawberry Rosé|
|Nose||Fresh berry aromas and subtle floral notes|
|Palate||Excellent fruit concentration on the palate. A slightly off-dry finish is beautifully balanced by a crisp acidity and a refreshing, savoury note|
|Vinification||The berries were destalked, lightly crushed and fermented under temperature controlled conditions in stainless steel tanks. A short maceration lasted for seven hours in order to achieve a delicate extraction of the palest colour, before being pressed. Fermentation was arrested through chilling when it had reached the perfect balance of fruit concentration, acidity and light residual sweetness|
