Product Description
Details

Made from Tempranillo, Grenache and Carignan, this blended Spanish rosé wine comes from DO Empordà, Catalonia's northernmost wine region.

Interestingly, Claret d'Albera from the Martí Fabra winery was made following a process which goes back to the XVIIth century.

The red grapes were macerated for 3 days and 2 nights, hence obtaining what in the region is called a "3-night claret." After that, Claret d'Albera 2020 was fermented in concrete tanks and aged on lees for 9 months.

Pair this claret from L'Empordà with Chinese food, tapas and rice dishes.

Additional Information
Appearance

The rosé wine Claret d'Albera is dark raspberry with some ruby tinges.

Nose

This blend of Tempranillo, Grenache and Carignan (known in Empordà as Ull de Llebre, Lledoner and Samsó) suggests intense aromas of redcurrants, boysenberries and strawberries. There are also some hints of rose petals and dim mineral remembrances.

Palate

Fresh, tangy and lifted, this young rosé wine from Martí Fabra has a medium-short, lively finish, with remembrances of citrus, licorice and herbs.

Our personal opinion

An amazing value, Claret d'Albera 2020 is a savoury, gulpable rosé that should be enjoyed cool, not chilled.
