Characteristics of Protos Rosado
Protos Rosado is a rose wine produced in the DO Ribera del Duero by Bodegas Protos.
Protos, which means "first" in Greek, was the first winery in the Ribera del Duero. This historical winery began its life in 1927, and today is one of the most well-known wineries on the global wine scene.
Protos Rosado is a varietal wine made from Tinta del Pais grapes, a native variety of Ribera del Duero.
The grapes come from vineyards planted on south facing slopes, with poor soils, mostly limestone. The harvest is done manually. Once in the winery, bunches are first selected, before selecting the best grains on sorting tables.
After a cold maceration for 16 hours to extract all the flavour of the grape, Protos Rosado is fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature.

After a dry winter, spring came loaded with rain. Thankfully, this water was stored, since it was much needed during the extremely dry summer. The low temperatures during spring delayed the sprouting of the vines, which led the growth cycle to start with delay. However, this delay was offset thanks to the high temperatures recorded in July and August, to the point of delaying ripening in those younger vineyards.
The 2016 vintage beat the production record of the 2014 vintage. And not only in production, but also in quality due to the excellent weather conditions and the excellent health of the vineyards.
The wines from this vintage offer a lot of volume, with a good capacity to face the passing of time, with roundness and spectacular tannins. A harvest reminiscent of those of the late 80s and early 90s.
The 2015 vintage started with a winter that had good groundwater reserves. The spring was warm and dry until well into the month of June, when there were intense rainfall at the beginning of the blooming. A summer with some well spread out storms gave way to a very dry autumn.
The harvest was slightly ahead of the usual dates, but the analytical and organoleptic features, and the balance of the berries, were ideal. Thus enabled the harvest to take place at the optimal ripening time.
The wines from this vintage, which was classified as excellent, have a good colour intensity, significant fruity notes on the nose and a high tannic potential in the mouth, with sweet tannins that indicate the good phenolic ripening of the berries. A vintage reminiscent of the exceptional 2005 vintage.
