Crafted by Losada Vinos de Finca, this Spanish rosé wine is made from young vines grown on steep slopes with clayey soils.
The grapes were picked by hand and brought to the cellar in 20 kg. boxes. Selected, destemmed and gently crushed, they were first cold-soaked for 12 hours.
After that, this rosé wine from El Bierzo was fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature, and further aged on its lees for 5 months.

The rosé wine 5 Rosas has a clean, gleaming, medium cherry-coloured robe with violet tinges.
The aromatic expression of this Mencía from El Bierzo is rather straightforward, with lively notes of red berries, some milky, creamy touches that come from the ageing on lees and, finally, some remembrances of herbs and mineral undertones.
Yummy and crisp, the palate of this rosé wine by Losada Vinos de Finca is full of strawberries, fine pastry and dim notes of liquorice. Long and refreshing, with a tight acidity and a long finish that brings back some mineral notes and flowery touches.

I purchased this rose driven by my growing interest in the Mencía grape. It is very good, and thank God not overtly fruity - which I don't like. It has a bitter twist which I find very attractive.
Medium-bodied rosé. Very good with tapas
A rosé with a mineral side. Interesting.
