Marismilla is a rosé wine produced by Bodegas Luis Pérez in Jeréz de la Frontera, V.T. Cádiz.
After a long career in the world of oenology, especially in the research field, in 2002 Luis Pérez began this project with the aim of recovering the tradition of red wine in the lands of Jeréz. In the 25-hectare farm, Hacienda Vistahermosa, he decided to destine 14 of those hectares to the cultivation of red varieties.
This particular farm is located in the heart of the vineyard area of Jeréz, on the high mountain of Pago del Corchuelo, which has features that make it unique:
- its high elevation influenced by the sea winds and a specific microclimate.
- the nature of the soil, with calcareous clays with gypsiferous marl, unique to the area. The Albariza soils.
- the plantation and the training of the vines is intended to attain great-quality wines.
Bodegas Luis Pérez has very modern facilities, designed for minimal intervention in all processes in order to achieve wines that express, to the maximum extent, the features of the variety and the land where they are born.
Marismilla is a wine made from Tintilla de Rota from Hacienda Viña Hermosa.
Harvesting is carried out at night and manually, placing the grapes in 15-kg boxes, and selecting the grapes in the vineyard and in the winery, on a selection table. The grapes are destemmed and vatted through gravity, and they go through a pre-fermentation maceration at 5ºC. The must rests for 4 hours with its skins. The it is separated and transferred to stainless steel deposits, where it goes through alcoholic fermentation at a low temperature.
Marismilla is a light, lively and fresh wine. With little colour but a lot of aroma. A different rosé that expands the records of this native and exclusive variety of the area.
