- Rosa Ruiz, who inherited her father’s love for the land and a focus on the finer details, lends her name to set apart this exceptional wine which is the first different to Santiago Ruiz.
- A limited edition, it comes from old vines of Albariño that are trellised in the traditional manner and located at the foot of the old winery, where Rosa learned the true philosophy of the winery with her father.
- From father to daughter, from daughter to father: A label loaded with significance and sentiment, expressing the union between father and daughter. Inspired by a photo taken of the two of them in 1993 in the winery where they shared so much. With Rosa Ruiz’s favorite color, red, taking center stage, it is an invitation to cross the threshold of the winery and enjoy its wines.
Varietal Composition: 100% Albariño from a selection of very low-yielding old vines planted at the foot of our winery, trained on the high pergola system typical of the O Rosal sub-zone.
Elaboration: Hand-harvested grapes from their own vineyards which after being selected in the sorting tables, are destemmed and softly crushed prior to maceration. Temperature-controlled fermentation following pre-fermentative cold maceration with dry ice for 12 hours. Long period of contact with the lees to achieve volume on the palate.
Tasting Notes: Pale-yellow color, clean and bright. Intense, clean, and powerful nose where the typical aromas of the Albariño variety (apple, pear, mango, papaya, white flowers and citrus) are fully ripe and marked in their presence. Broad, structured and full-bodied on the palate lifted by a bright acidity that offers a sufficient framework to support such structure. The aromas are very much present again on the finish.
