Tasting notes - An approachable but serious rosé, displaying great purity of flavour in a light, elegant style.

Mesta Organic Rose Ucles Tempranillo 2020

An attractively styled rosé with lovely candied strawberry
aromas and lots of crunchy fresh fruit on the palate.
Producer Note
Mesta is a range of organically and sustainably grown single varietal wines, which
stylishly showcase the Spanish wine revolution under the symbol of the Mesta. Mesta
was a powerful alliance of sheep ranchers in medieval Castile, who controlled the
cañadas: the traditional rights of way for migrating sheep. To this day the cañadas are
protected from being blocked or built upon, a reminder of ancient rights and a model
of coexistence with nature. This modern range, from the fashionable DO Uclés in central
Castile, offers wines of great purity and varietal typicity.
Vineyard
The grapes are grown in a few select vineyards above the town of Tramin at altitudes
varying from 350 to 550 metres above sea level. The vines are aged between 10 and 40
years and are grown in calciferous gravel with loam on porphyry bedrock soils. The
vines are trained on both the traditional Pergola system as well as the modern Guyot
systems. There is an extreme interplay between the sunny days influenced by the
Mediterranean climate and the cool nights marked by cool, downslope winds from the
surrounding mountains. This microclimate is excellent for promoting a long hang time
concentrating flavours while retaining balancing acidity in the grapes.
Winemaking
The grapes were picked in the early morning and immediately transported to the stateof-the-art winery. The berries were gently pressed after a brief period of maceration to
achieve the pale rosé colour. Fermentation took place at controlled temperatures of
18°C in small stainless steel tanks, followed by natural sedimentation to clarify the wine.
Maturation took place in small steel tanks with constant lees contact until the end of
August, promoting a rich texture in the resulting wine. The wine was bottle aged further
for four months. The total maturation period lasted for a minimum of 15 months.
