Quadrum Rosé is a blend of 50% Tempranillo, 50% Garnacha, from vineyards located in the southern subzone of La Mancha, surrounding the city of Ciudad Real. Vines were planted between 1980 - 2000, and are subject to sustainable dry farmed viticulture. High density trellises without irrigation or harmful fungicides, herbicides, pesticides, or chemically synthesized fertilizers. Sandy soils intermixed with small chunks of limestone. The surface is intermixed with iron rich red clay.
Fruit is Hand harvested. The bunches are destemmed and the grapes are co-macerated for 8 hours before being pressed to produce a lightly colored, elegant rosé. Temperature controlled fermentation (inoculated with neutral yeast) in stainless steel tanks. The wine is bottled young after a few months in stainless steel to preserve freshness.
