Belonging to the DO Navarra, the grapevines grow at an average altitude of 425 metres above sea level.
In order to preserve the qualities of the fruit, the vinification process of this Merlot rosé wine was minimalistic.
After a careful selection process, the grapes were cold-soaked for 12 hours and fermented in stainless steel tanks for 30 days at a temperature of 13ºC.
Finally, Otazu Rosado 2018 was aged before a minimum of 3 months before its commercial release.
Drink this rosé wine from Navarra until 2020. Production of 20,000 bottles.
The red wine Otazu Rosado has a bright rosy colour with some steely tinges and a salmon-coloured hue at the rim.
Showing at first some vigorous aromas of raspberries and redcurrants, this rosé wine by Señorío de Otazu smoothly shifts to notes of strawberry milk and sour candies, with dim overtones of herbs, fennel and aniseed.
Vibrant and seductive, this Merlot from Navarra is full of luscious red fruit, with a silky texture, mild tannins and a crisp acidity. Long finish with a strawberry milkshake remembrance in the aftertaste.
