2022 Gil Family Estates Honoro Vera Rosé
Honoro Vera is the new project of the Gil family, who are world famous for their El Nido and Clio wines, but also have very small beautiful domains where the best of the region is brought out on a very small scale. All these wines are gems. The name Honoro Vera is a tribute to the Gil family where Honoro is the name of Miquel Gil's grandfather and his grandmother's Vera
The Honoro Vera Rosé is a relatively new wine in the Honoro Vera Collection. We carry the already very popularHonoro Vera Garnacha and the other wines from Honoro Vera (which is part of the Juan Gil Family) excel in Price-Quality and that is also the case with this delicious fresh rosé.
This Gil Family Estates Honoro Vera Rosé is a beautiful light salmon-colored rosé with hints of watermelon rind on the nose. The taste is bright and fresh with notes of red fruits and berries, including strawberry, cherry and again ends with watermelon. A fresh and refreshing Rosé with a mineral edge and a long, dry finish that is reminiscent of the Provencal style and with its 12.5% also civilized in alcohol percentage.
Winemaking Notes: This wine is a blend of Tempranillo and Syrah. It was made using a combination of direct pressing and the saignée method and vinified in steel tanks. The juice is then only allowed to ferment at a low temperature (18-20°C / 65-68°F) to preserve the maximum aromas. The wine is VEGAN certified.
