Grapes: 50% Trepat, 30% Monastrell, and 20% Pinot Noir.
Aging: The wine is obtained at a controlled temperature of 57-59º Fahrenheit. The second fermentation in bottle is completed under natural cork, in horizontal position in rima with over 30 months of aging in the traditional bottle on its lees in Cava Mestres. Then the bottles are moved from the rima resting position to favor the yeast autolysis process, greatly improving structure, and complexity. Finally, after manual disgorging, we place the second cork. Mestres always states the disgorging date on the label.
Residual sugar: Less than 6 g/l.
Taste: Red fruits, floral notes, and spices. The palate is structured, red fruit aromas reveal floral notes, and spicy undertones. Complex with good balanced acidity. Fine and elegant bubbles.
Color: Bright raspberry color.
Talking About the Wines:
-A View From The Cellar, May-June ’18 gave 90 points to 2013 Mestres Cupage Rosé Reserva. “… delivers fine aromatic complexity in its nicely evolved bouquet of cherries, blood orange, rye toast, salty soil tones, cloves, and gentle smokiness in the upper register. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied… with a fine core, elegant mousse and good acids adding lift and bounce on the long and complex finish…”
-International Wine Report, April '17 gave 90 points to 2013 Mestres Cupage Rosé. "This opens with an aromatic profile of guava, red cherry starburst, orange rind, and hints of sourdough bread. The palate is bright and smooth yielding flavors reminiscent of guava, red cherry, red raspberry, strawberry, and Red Delicious apple. The silky mouthfeel is lovely, and the level of dosage employed, plays well with the varietals."
