Characteristics Les Argiles de d'Orto Vins Rosat
Les Argiles d'Orto Vins Rosat is a single-variety Garnacha rosé wine produced by the Orto Vins winery in the D.O. Montsant , in Tarragona, Spain.
The grapes used to make Les Argiles d'Orto Vins Rosat come from the L'Era vineyard, which lies on small terraces 150 metres above sea level with clay soils. When the grapes reach the winery, they macerate with their skins for around 5 hours and are then pressed. The must ferments at a controlled temperature with its native yeasts. The resulting wine ages on its lees and is bottled in the spring following the harvest.
Orto is the moment when a star crosses the horizon line and marks a new day. It is the alignment and link between the land, the vine and the wine. Orto Vins focusses on recovering family vineyards and working them according to the principles of biodynamic agriculture. It is managed by Joan Asens, one of the country’s most outstanding winemakers who worked with Álvaro Palacios to develop the internationally recognised and sought after L'Ermita wine. The wines that Asens produces in Montsant are synonymous with a respect for nature and extremely high quality.
