Rioja Rose Quinto Arrio
Rioja Rose Quinto Arrio is a really luscious pink with lovely expressive fruit and floral aromas. It provides a well-balanced and very refreshing glass of wine to drink.
This wine is made from organically grown Garnacha grapes, macerated for not more than one hour. The wine is then subjected to a cooling process at around 13°C before racking. Fermentation takes place over 15 days at a controlled temperature so that the wine retains all its fruity aromas and colour.
Navarrsotillo is a quality wine producer that began in 1995 when they started converting the family vineyards, fields and orchards to organic farming standards. They released their first wine two years later. Since then the grower has focused all efforts on organic, quality wines and a commitment to caring for the earth.
The vineyards are divided between several municipalities, Calahorra, Andosilla and San Adrian. This is an area called the “Rioja Mediterranean” with cold winters, mild and rainy springs and autumns, and hot dry summers. The grounds have different textures with limestone, sand, clay and gravel. This all gives the right combination of climate and “terroir” featuring the location that favours elegant wines with soft tannins.
Serve at 8-10 C
No animal products are used in making this wine: this is the case with all wines on our website. This is not the case with so many wines that are commonly on sale in the UK. Far too many wines have animal products used as a so-called production aid; they will often have a large array of chemical additives as well. Have a look at our page on additives allowed in wines. Many vegan wines are also organic or better still bio-dynamically grown. The care taken in growing the grapes and making the wine comes through in the taste of the final product. This is a vegan wine.
