Grapes: 50% Trepat, 30% Monastrell and 20% Pinot Noir.
Aging: The wine is obtained at a controlled temperature of 57-59 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:
-International Wine Report, April '17 gave 90 points to 2013 Mestres Cupage Rosé. "This wine is a blend of 50% Trepat, 30% Monastrell and 20% Pinot Noir which was aged for 30 months on the lees prior to disgorgement in July 2016. 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."
