Valdelosfrailes Rosado is a fresh, bright balanced wine made with grapes from proprietary vineyards in Quintanilla de Trigueros at the Terrón Blanco estate. Controlled fermentation draws out the intensity of the fruit with floral notes. It is a very clean, very bright wine which is cherry red in color with a purplish sheen. It has a high aromatic intensity and a broad range of red and black fruit, typical of Tempranillo; strawberries, raspberries and cherries mixed with subtle floral notes. It is very balanced and fresh on the palate due the perfect combination of slight acidity and lots of body.
