Bodegas Pinord is a family business which was founded 150 years ago. Since then, generation after generation, year after year, the wines produced by the family have been growing in prestige, the indigenous varieties have improved markedly, and the family name has become inseparably linked to the Penedés area where they are based.The Penedés district is situated between Barcelona and Tarragona, with the mountains of Montserrat marking the border in the north and the Mediterranean in the South. The soil is varied, contrasting from chalky clay to sandstone with distinct differences in depth so that the vines may take root. The mild Mediterranean climate is ideal for growing vines, indeed there is evidence that the Romans planted vineyards here. The slightly wetter weather in the valleys means that there is no need for irrigation.
Grapes100% Garnacha Tinta
Fermentation and maceration of the grapes for more than three weeks. The second fermentation takes place in the bottle and it is kept for more than one year in the cellar.
Clear pinkish tones. Small bubbles are gently released to form various strings that rise to the surface.
It has a gentle fragrance with smells of fruits, raspberry and blackcurrant. Also noticeable are the tertiary aromas of the ageing on the lees which give it more wine-like features.
It is very full in the mouth with a splendid bubbly sensation that fills the whole palate. Red fruit also appears, even more markedly on the nose. Long finish and great elegance.
Very drinkable. Possibly a little to drinkable. A very delicate Cava and the rose version just seems quite a decadent way to end the day. Thoroughly recommend it.
