Caballo Oscuro Garnacha Rosé 2020 – Dry Rosé Wine
The traditional red variety of the Ebro valley, Garnacha, can be light and fruity as well as full and rich. With a skin contact that is measured in minutes rather than hours, a faint but pretty rosé colour is achieved.
The Ebro is the major river in the north-east of Spain and the largest river in Spain to run into the Mediterranean. Along its length there are many wine growing regions, , starting with the region of Rioja below the city of Logroño. From there it flows through the lower part of Navarra and then on past Campo de Borja, Calatayud and Cariñena… way on down towards the Priorat, Tarragona and to the sea.
In 2020, as in most of Spain, a mild winter was followed by an exceptionally wet spring - the average annual rainfall was doubled in just two months - creating conditions for mildew. Some plots were badly affected and yields were reduced, but the summer was very dry and quality has been exceptional, with light rainfall towards the end of the harvest having no detrimental effect.
