Bodegas Ontañón "Clarete" Rose 2022
|Availability:||In stock (1)|
Clarete is a uniquely Riojana style rosé. Unlike most rosé which is made by pressing off the juice of red grapes with minimal skin contact, Clarete is a blend of white (Viura) and red grapes (Tempranillo) co-fermented with their skins to produce a lighter, almost Provençal style rosé. This style has a very rich tradition in Rioja and at Ontañón as well. A throwback of sorts, to a time when red and white grapes grew in the same rows and consequently became part of the same blend.
