Characteristics Marañones Tapafugas rosado
Marañones Tapafugas rosado is a barrel-aged rosé wine made with the Garnacha Tinta and Albillo varieties in the D.O. Vinos de Madrid by the Marañones winery.
Marañones is the name of the project set up by agronomist and winemaker Fernando García Alonso and owner of the J. Fernando Cornejo winery and vineyards. Located in the town of Sant Martín de Valdeiglesias, one of the three Vinos de Madrid sub-regions, they know how to make the most of the innate characteristics of the acclaimed Sierra de Gredos and shape them in the most honest way.
The Marañones Tapafugas rosé wine starts life at the foot of the meeting point between the Sierra de Guadarrama and the Sierra de Gredos, where the vines are influenced by the Alberche river. This is an experimental wine that uses different varieties year to year, depending on the vintage, but that is always made with a focus on quality. The vines are cultivated using environmentally friendly agriculture and the harvest is carried out manually in 12 kg boxes.
In the winery, the Marañones Tapafugas rosado grapes ferment with native yeasts in a used French oak wood foudre. The wine stays there to age for 10 months.
Marañones Tapafugas rosé is an experimental wine whose name “Tapafugas” is a tribute to one of the most endearing characters in Fernardo Cornejo’s town. An authentic Sierra de Gredos claret.
