This Spanish rosé wine comes from the western Catalan region of Terra Alta.
The last variety, Grey Grenache, was almost extinct in the region, but thanks to the efforts and hard work of wineries such as Celler Frisach, it has been fortunately recovered.
After the harvest, all of the grapes were put together and kept for 24 hours.
Then they were macerated for a short time, gently crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks using only the "free-run" juice.

The rosé wine L'Abrunet de Frisach Rosat has a bright, clean onion skin colour with some steely tinges.
This organic rosé wine from Terra Alta displays intense notes of wild berries, aromatic herbs, orange, tangerine and flowers. On the background, an original salty touch.
This threefold Grenache organic rosé wine by Celler Frisach is fresh, clear and focused. Juicy remembrances of red fruit and garrigue, some touches of citrus and some floral hints. Pleasant, uplifting finish.
