Rocha Rosa: Tinto 2011
The Vineyard is situated 450 meters above sea level giving the climate slightly cooler than the plains so the vines benefit from cooling breezes at night. Fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Ageing 50% of the blend aged for 90 months in a mix used French and American oak barrels. It has a deep, dark intense red with berry and plum fruit aromas. Rich, flavoursome with a velvety palate which has good depth of ripe fruit. Smooth, soft and well balanced with a long finish. Drinks well now but will improve in the bottle over the next 2-3 years. Matches well with grilled chicken, meats, fish and sauce-based pasta.
