Characteristics 12 Lunas Rosado
12 Lunas Rosado is a rosé wine produced by the winery El Grillo y la Luna in Barbastro, D.O. Somontano.
El Grillo y la Luna is a family project that was born in Barbastro in 2007, with the aim of producing wines with soul, wines that are unique.
They have 5 different vineyard areas, which have several types of soils. These go from calcareous soils, alluvial soils with gravel or loam soils, located between 300 and 400 metres of altitude.
They work with a total of 48 hectares of their own vineyards. Their motto is that wine is created in the vine. Therefore, wines only hit the market when they are at their best, with maximum respect for the singularity of the vintage.
They produce two lines of wine: 12 Lunas, a line of fresh, fruit-laden wines, and El Grillo, a line of more complex wines, with a greater reflection of the terroir.
12 Lunas Rosado is a wine prepared with the saignée of the Syrah that is used in single-vineyard wines. Each one comes from a different vineyard, and each one is prepared individually. They are manually harvested and placed in 12kg boxes. Once they are crushed and macerated with their skins for 24 hours, they undergo the saignée process in a stainless steel deposit, where fermentation continues for a month at 15ºC. Once the fermentation has concluded, it is racked to separate the gross lees. Now, the ageing begins for 4 months with its fine lees. Before being bottled, it is statically clarified.
12 Lunas Rosado is an intense, lingering, fruity wine. It retains a small amount of CO2to give it freshness.
