D.O. Penedès (Catalonia)
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.
