Rigau Ros Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon
Empordà – Land of artists.
"Powerful, pure, tempting"
ORIGIN • DO EMPORDÀ •
Located in the northern part of the Alt Empordà region, Rigau Ros comes from the exclusive vineyards of the village Capmany. These are rocky, mineral soils predominated by granite sand and flecks of slate. Aged between 25 and 30 years old and unirrigated, the vines are forced to push their roots down to reach the water they require. As a result, they are nourished by the deepest substrata, giving the wine its intense, captivating character.
90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot.
PRODUCTION AND AGING
Fermented at controlled temperature of 25°C-28°C and macerated for 25 days. The wine is aged in American oak barrels (Missouri) and French oak barrels (Allier) for 24 months and then, for the rest of the time, in the bottle (minimum 36 months).
In terms of appearance, it has an attractive ruby red colour with orange hints.
On the nose, it has fine and intense aromas (ripe black fruits, coffee, undergrowth) on a toasted background.
On the palate, it has a soft and unctuous entry. It is flavourful, chewy, good structured and persistent.
Excellent companion for meat, spiced stew, flavourful fish and cured cheese. Optimal serving temperature 15°C - 17°C. Recommended to open 15 minutes before serving.
