Characteristics of Arrayán Rosado
Arrayán Rosado is a rosé wine made by Bodegas Arrayán. Bodegas Arrayán was founded by entrepreneur José María Entrecanales and his wife, María Marsans, on their estate, La Verdosa, which is located in Santa Cruz de Retamar, Toledo.
Bodegas Arrayán arose from its founders' dream of creating a vineyard that uses innovative viticultural techniques in perfect harmony with the ecosystem of the Mediterranean grassland (dehesa) to create high-quality wines with a strong personalities.
To achieve this, renowned Australian viticulturist, Richard Smart, performed an exhaustive study of the terrain, soil, and climate to choose the optimal exposures, orientations and varieties for the winery's goals.
Arrayán Rosado belongs to the D.O. Méntrida and is made with Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot grapes from the vineyards in their estate "La Verdosa".
Turning now to the production process, this wine is made using the "sangrado" method - 10% of each of the four varieties is devatted off ("bled off"). After a cold maceration lasting for 8 hours, the wine slowly ferments at 15ºC in stainless steel deposits for approximately 20 days.

Méntrida, like other famous wine regions of La Mancha, is steeped in history. The vines here grow under bright blue Castilian skies in a landscape which enjoys spectacular views of the snowy mantle of the Sierra de Gredos. The character of the wines produced here, tough and honest, were always enjoyed by the Habsburg Dynasty in Madrid. That being said, a new generation of wine is emerging, albeit at a slower rate than other regions in Spain, renovating wineries with modern equipment with a generation of young winemakers who are producing pleasant and balanced wines, some have even managed to recover the local flavour of its wines using the classic earthenware jars, now appreciated and fashionable in other areas.
