Product Description
Giró Ribot Unplugged Brut Rosé was barrel aged and crafted by the enologist Joan Rovira of the Caves Giró Ribot winery. Mr. Rovira selected Pinot Noir as the protagonist grape in this cava´s coupage along with other red grape varietals from this winery’s vineyards. The vinification process for this rosé cava began after the grapes were destemmed as they received a cold maceration (criomaceración) . This process helped the winemakers to extract the full aromatic expressions from the grapes as well as their pigmentation to give this rosé sparkling wine its salmon pink color. This cavas grape must was partially aged in stainless steel vats at controlled temperatures between 54-57 ºF (12-14 ºC) to extract secondary aromatics while the remainder of this wine was fermented in French and American oak barrels where the grape must was also aged in crianza with weekly batonnage rotations while the must remained in contact with its lees. This cava realized its second fermentation process during its crianza ageing in its bottle which lasted between 15 and 24 months in the silence and darkness of the Giró Ribot winery´s underground caves. This cava had yeasted added for this second fermentation process so that it would be a silkier cava. After Giro Ribot Unplugged was disgorged there was a residual sugar content of 6 grams per liter. The production of this oaked rosé cava was limited to 2,000 bottles.

Appearance This is a very attractive Pinot Noir based rosé cava with a pale salmon pink colored body, delicate columns of fine effervesce, and a persistent crown.
Nose Very fresh and expressive aromatics with good complexity. There are divine nuanced pastry notes and creams along with erotic pineapple aromatics. There are also enticing red frit berry notes that are well concentrated and nearly jammed along with enticing vanilla notes from this cavas age in oak.
Palate A fresh and lively entrance onto the palate that is big and followed by a very pleasant passage that is full of red fruits with a silky texture and effervescence that will melt away in your mouth. This effervesce is very fine and perfectly integrated lending this cava pleasant silkiness. This rosé cava has sensational acidity that is very well paired with its sugar content. There is a pleasant finish with nuanced pastry notes.
Our personal opinion Giró Ribot Unplugged Brut Rosado is a perfect rosé sparkling wine. This cava pairs brilliantly with seared shrimp and we will personally be enjoying this cava at our Christmas Eve dinner this year.
