Mas Codina, vi rosat, DO PenedèsRegular price €15.00
A richly coloured, not shy Catalonian rosé made from Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, Toni Garriga's rosat combines fresh berry fruit aromas with the depth and power of its Bordeaux blend of grape varieties. This is a perfect rosé—you could almost think of it as a light red—to drink on its own, preferably in the sun, or as an accompaniment to salads or tapas.
Mas Codina is located in the Alt Penedès, Catalonia, and is protected by two benevolent mountain ranges. All the fruit it uses is estate-grown.
The Penedès region spans a long strip of land between the sea and the mountains, half-way between Barcelona and Tarragona.
The DO is made up of three distinct zones: The Penedès Superior (near the inland mountain range), The Penedès Marítim (between the sea and the coastal hills) and Penedès Central (the plain between these areas). The climate is typically Mediterranean, mild and warm.
Penedès has long been associated with innovative winemaking practices. In the 1970s, it became the first area in Spain to use stainless steel equipment and cold-fermentation. Since then the Penedès producers have been making excellent modern wines blending native with French varieties.
