D.O. Penedès (Catalonia)
Ermita d'Espiells Rosé is a pink wine 100% Pinot Noir, from Penedès produced by the Juve & Camps winery.
The grapes are harvested during the month of September, when the grapes reach optimum ripeness. A first selection of grapes takes place in the vineyard.
Once in the winery, and for greater aromatic extraction, the grapes are de-stemmed and macerated cold with their own skins for about 14 hours.
Ermita d'Espiells Rosé then passes into stainless steel tanks using the technique of bleeding. In these, the wine is fermented at low temperature and with selected yeasts. Ermita d'Espiells Rosé ages for three months in tanks with the lees before spending nine months in bottle.
Juve & Camps was born of the marriage between Joan Juve i i Baqués and Teresa Camps Ferrer. This historical winery was founded in the late eighteenth century and commercialized its first sparkling wine in 1921.
