This 100% direct press Pinot Noir Rosé is from a limestone rich vineyard located high up in the Uco Valley in Gualtallary. The pale pink wine is crisp and vibrant with notes of strawberry, raspberry and fresh cut watermelon that is held up by a mineral backbone. The finish is refreshing with hints of ripe fig, tangerine and crushed wet rock.

    The rosé 2016 Terroir Único Pinot Noir is produced with grapes from Tupungato fermented after pressing the grapes as if it was a white wine. It was bottled unoaked. It has a bright color, between salmon and roses, and a floral, clean nose. The palate shows some herbal notes that provide freshness and ends dry, with a mineral note. A serious rosé, delicious and fresh.
