Characteristics of Barbazul Rosado
Barbazul Rosado is the third in its series. Bluebeard, Barbazul, Barbazul Blanco and Rosado.
It is a varietal Syrah produced by the Bodega Huerta de Albala in Cádiz. The grapes come from vineyards located next to the winery, planted on hillsides at an altitude of between 100 and 200 meters above sea level. The farm has a special microclimate as it is sheltered by the Sierra de Gazalema and Bornos swamp. Hot days and cool nights and evenings help obtain a slow ripening of the grapes and maintain the acidity level of the grapes. The harvest is done manually. Barbazul Rosado is fermented for 12 days at a controlled temperature of 12ºC. A very sweet and fruity rosé.

The traditional image of Andalusian wine in has undergone what some have called the ´purple revolution’ in the past decade. We have seen in the region a rise in conventional wines that are no longer side-lined in a region whose cultural fabric has so far has been dominated by fortified wines such as Sherry and Manzanilla. Wineries such as Huerta de Albalá have sprung up across Andalusia with the aim of finding different oenological alternatives to show that the south is not only land of fortified wine.
