Martin Berdugo Rosado
A spectacular rosado wine from 100% Tempranillo grapes – with more colour, body, personality and strength than other rosés.
Tempranillo grapes grown exclusively in the single vineyard estate surrounding Berdugo’s winery allowing them to control quality from beginning to end. The south-facing vineyard contains gravel, sand, silt and light clay soils – all excellent for concentrating flavours and aromas.
For the wine making, the must (grape juice) spends 12 hours in cold maceration at 7°C under a cap of CO2 before being bled off. A long, slow cold fermentation follows at 11°C. A great deal of care is taken to ensure the purity and clarity of the fruit.
Martin Berdugo are a modern, progressive, family company; easily witnessed by the contemporary architecture of the winery and their stylish labels. Less obvious though is their constant evolving and experimentation with the wine making. Martin Berdugo seek improvement at every harvest and have a passion to bring what they call an “element of difference” to those who share their taste and wine philosophy: one of style, flair, communication, discovery and “the creation of unforgettable moments”.
A striking vivid pink colour. There are intense aroma of fresh fruit, strawberry caramel, raspberries, with light sweet touches of honey, notes of banana, citrus and biscuit. The weight of fruit in the nose is confirmed in the mouth, it is a silky and fresh wine, well balanced, with a very pleasant and persistent palate where its fullness is perceived to be sweetness. A real and lingering feast of sensations.
Ideal for accompanying rice dishes of all kinds from delicate mushroom risotto to shellfish paella, fried, grilled and poached fish or seafood dishes and young cheeses.
About the Producer
Bodegas Martin Berdugo
Matrin Berdugo was founted in 2000 and their estate consists of a single 87ha vineyard of Tinto del Pais (Tempranillo) grapes located and surrounded by the Duero River; a major part of the vineyard is on alluvial beds covered with large stones.
The quality of the wines is influenced by a number of natural factors and, importantly, an attitude that “everything counts” – the use of leading edge technology to help in grape selection, meticulous spring and summer pruning, weather predictions and terroir profiling.
The location of the cellar – surrounded by the vineyard – guarantees the reception of the manually harvested grapes in optimal conditions, where after the wine is vinified in sixteen 25,000 litre stainless steel vats and aged in 360, mainly American, oak barrels.
