Grapes for the Rioja Rosado are sourced from Rioja Alavesa, Rioja Alta and Rioja Baja. The soils are mainly limestone and clay.
Spring and summer were very warm, and as a result, harvest started 15 days earlier than the previous year and ended before the end of September. Weather in September was exceptionally cold and dry, with temperatures more than 2ºC lower than the past 10 years. This allowed the grapes to mature slowly and in perfect health.
The grapes are fermented in stainless steel temperature controlled tanks at 15-20ºC over a period of 15-20 days. No malolactic fermentation is allowed to occur and the wine is bottled without ageing.
