Product Description
Details

This is no ordinary rosé. Crafted by Can Ràfols dels Caus, Gran Caus Rosat truly succeeds in merging the lightness of a rosé with the complexity of a red wine.

A single varietal Merlot, this Spanish rosé wine from Penedès has all the refinement of a Provence rosé, but a considerably more solid structure.

The vines are planted in sandy-limestone soils at an altitude of 300 metres above sea level. Certified organic, they are located in the Garraf Massif, a coastal area not far from Barcelona where soils have a very particular, salty minerality.

The grapes of this rosé wine from Penedès were harvested by hand, and the "free-run" juice was obtained after an 18 to 24 hour cold-soaking process. Spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel tanks lasted for 40 days.

Appearance

The young rosé Gran Caus Rosat has a bright, medium ruby-coloured robe with a reddish rim.

Nose

Lively and enticing, this organic rosé wine exhibits very pure aromas of red berries, remembrances of strawberry milkshake, notes of aromatic herbs, such as rosemary, thyme and laurel, and a dash of withered flowers. The Merlot variety truly sings here.

Palate

On the palate, this wine from Can Ràfols dels Caus is seductive and well-balanced, with a fruity side that is simply delicious, and also a wonderful freshness. Medium-bodied, linear and tense, it is reminiscent of red berries, liquorice, and herbs, with a dim mineral background. This Penedès rosé wine has a medium, smooth finish with a salty and zesty note.

Our personal opinion

Light, rich and complex, Gran Caus Rosat 2018 pairs marvelously with Italian food, rice dishes and roasted meat.

This is one of the few rosés that REALLY ages well. I've drinking some old bottles over the last years and its evolution has been nothing short of spectacular. Congrats to Can Ràfols!!
