Aurora Rosado is made with grapes from the winery’s estate, grown in accordance with the principles of integrated agriculture. The vineyards where our Grenache grapes grow are on average 20 years old and lie on rolling hills in stony, loamy-limestone soil. The 2019 vintage was marked by a dry winter and rainy spring, however the vegetative cycle took a normal course. The summer was dry with occasional storms. The harvest was small due to the yield control techniques carried out in the vineyard and because blossoming was affected in spring. Despite being a complicated year with the storms in spring, the sanitary state of the grape was well controlled and the physiological and phenolic ripening was optimum and homogeneous.
This rosé is made following the tradicional saignée method where the grenache grapes are picked at optimum ripeness, destemmed and macerated in a stain steel tank for around 10 hours to extract the lovely cherry colour and the primary
aromas. Then the mustis bleeding and the alcoholic fermentation take place in a stain steel tank for 20 days at 16C to keep the freshness of the aromatics. Once the fermentation is completed the wine is racked and kept 1 month on its fine lees in an inert vessel to add and extratextural mouthfeel. The brightness of the colour imply clarification and filtering prior bottling.
