Region

The great plain of La Mancha, to the south of Madrid and east of Toledo, represents the largest viticultural area of Spain. The climate is arid, extreme in both summer and winter, tempered by strong prevailing winds. The widely planted white Arien grape variety is slowly losing favour to Tempranillo, Shiraz and Garnacha and the old wineries are giving way to gleaming modern facilities heralding a revolution for the region`s winemaking.

Producer

Josep Masachs Llorach, owned vineyards in Vilafranca del Penedès as early as 1920. During this time he was one of the pioneers of the area producing still wines, his son took over his father’s hobby and made it his profession and turned his house, known to everyone as Cal Cabanyes, into his manufacturing center in the 1950s. Nowadays, the fourth generation of the family has arrived with an open and innovative mindset. Under the watchful eye of Joan Masachs and led by Alex Ruíz Masachs – hardworking, curious and creative with extensive experience in enology and global sales – family values have been reinterpreted to transmit them through more environmentally friendly products.
Tasting Notes
This 100% Bobal rose is a pale pink color with violet highlights. Lively and fragrant on the nose with fresh red fruits notes of blackcurrants, cherries and strawberries and crushed, dried rose petals. A lively wine with fresh acidity and a balanced finish.
