This interesting rosé Cava is made solely from Trepat, a grape variety indigenous to southern Catalonia.
Manually harvested and selected, the grapes were macerated for 8 to 10 hours so this rosé sparkling wine got both colour and aromatic finesse. After that, the free-run juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks. Secondary fermentation took place inside the bottle, after which Mas Tinell Brut Rosé Reserva 2017 was aged for 18 months.
This a very versatile rosé Cava from Penedès.
Clean and bright, the rosé Cava Mas Tinell Brut Rosé has a lively, intense rosy colour with a violet hue.
Fresh and crisp aromas, typical of the Trepat variety. Loads of red berries, combined with sparks of citrus, hints of fine lees, and a touch of dry fruit. Mastinell Rosé is a Brut Rosé Cava whose background is reminiscent of aniseed and balsam.
Fresh and joyful, the rosé Cava Mas Tinell is fruit-driven and well-defined. It has an outstanding acidity, with some palate-caressing bubbles. Long finish with an aftertaste of red fruit, toast and bitter herbs.

I like the character of the Trepat variety. Not too fruity, more on the mineral side. Excellent product!!
