Finca Losada 5 Rosas 2016
A modern winery, in the Bierzo (pronounced bee-er-tho) region, featuring exclusively Mencia (pronounced men-thee-a) wines from old plantings. Located near the village of Pieros on the famous pilgrim route of St. James (the Camino de Santiago de Compostela).
Losada's vineyards are a series of small parcels of traditionally bush-trained vines planted in slate and clay soils. Minimum intervention is followed out in the vineyards, partly in respect to the traditions, but mainly out of respect to the environment, the workers, and the people who enjoy their wines. That is, no chemical herbicides or pesticides are used.
The Jesus Manzanares designed winery uses gravity to move wine through the production process rather than pumps. The design also incorporates features of the environment for both heat/cooling and light, including locating the ageing cellar, production area, and bottling line underground. Solar panels generate power for much of the production.
Winemaker Amancio Fernandez shares responsibility for the development of the Bierzo region when he worked at Dominio de Tares until joining Finca Losada in 2005.
Mencia is indigenous to the Bierzo region (Salamanca) of northwest Spain, and is genetically identical to Portugal’s Jaen du Dão grape.
The Menćia grapes for this rosé wine come from the estate’s youngest plot (~30 year old), located close to the river. Soil is predominantly Franco-clay, and the gentle slope gives optimal exposure to sunlight, ideal for ripening the grapes. Grapes are hand-harvested with a yield target of 5,000 kg/Ha.
Following a short, 10-hour maceration to extract colour from the grapes, the grapes are gently crushed. Alcoholic fermentation occurs in temperature-controlled (22 celsius) stainless-steel tanks, lasting about 20 days, with regular stirring of the lees. Bottled in December, following a gentle fining with bentonite. This is only the third vintage of the wine.
Tasting note: Pale rose-pink colour, with slight purple tints. Aromas and flavours of strawberry and raspberry with slight floral notes and hints of cherry cordial. Fresh and crisp, light- to medium-bodied, with a mouthwatering finish.
Pairings: Spice-rubbed chicken or pork, grilled/deep-fried seafood, burgers, Tapas, and most any vegetarian options.
