Why is this Wine so Yummy?
GRAPE VARIETY 100% Trepat ORIGIN The Trepat grape is a native variety, exclusive to the north of Spain. The TRESOR ROSÉ BRUT vineyards are located in Conca de Barberà, the perfect home to the Trepat grape variety. These vineyards are 20 years old on average and grow in areas found at altitudes ranging between 350 and 600 meters. The vineyard plots are south-facing and made up of predominately calcareous soils, poor in organic matter. The planting density on each plot does not exceed 2,500 vines/ hectare, and the vines are cultivated respecting a code of best practice based on sustainability and environmentally-friendly principles. Harvesting is carried out by hand with yields below 10,000 kg/ hectare.
♦ Pre-fermentation maceration using the bleeding method, in which the free run juice and the skins macerate for 12 to 18 hours at a temperature of 12 – 14 °C, in order to extract color and bring out the grape’s potential aromas.
♦ Static settling and fermentation in stainless steel vats at 15 – 17°C.
♦ Second fermentation in bottle respecting the Traditional Method.
AGEING From 12 to 15 months on its lees, in the depths of our underground cellars.
TASTING NOTES Appearance: lovely bright pink tone with orange highlights. Its lively, continuous stream of beads rises like a rosary to create a perfect crown.

On the palate: its freshness gives way to the soft taste of red fruit.
