Characteristics of Gaintus One Night's Rosé
Gaintus One Night's Rosé is a rosé wine made by the Heretat Mont Rubí winery, located in the town of Font-Rubí to the north of the D.O. Penedès.
The philosophy of the winery is to support traditional, sustainable viticulture that is respectful of the environment, seeking balance between its grape strains and the environment, and at the same time incorporate new technology.
Heretat Mont Rubí started the year 2000 with the Gaintus project, with the aim of restoring and reclaiming the Sumoll grape variety, an almost extinct variety in the Catalan winemaking panorama.
Gaintus One Night's Rosé is a 100% Sumoll, planted in 70% clay limestone soils and 30% slate. It is harvested by hand, followed by a light maceration of its skins to obtain its gentle colour. The grape is chilled before being lightly pressed, and it undergoes a controlled fermentation in 700 litre cement eggs, where a battonage of its fine lees is also carried out for 3 months.
An elegant, fresh and subtle rosé wine. Even with its delicacy, it allows a glimpse of the personality of the variety.
Today, the D.O Penedès is experimenting with viticulture and winemaking like no other region in Spain, home to a vast range of different grape varieties. The region is home to traditional white and red varieties, foreign ones, noble ones, permitted grapes, experimental grapes, and those that demostrate intrinsic qualities. As well as the grapes, the production techniques used are also worth noting, the location of the vineyards, the yields per hectare, the wines produced using traditional, original or even exclusive blends, the different ageing times, as well as the complexity of the different barrels used! But the reality is, given the vast diversity, it can be difficult to pinpoint what really defines a wine from Penedès, since there are so many types of wines and wineries in the region. However, the common denominator of all the wines from Penedès continues to be balance and quality.
