The Most Popular Rose in Spain
Demand for this wine has been strengthened by pilgrims walking along the Way of St. James to the shrine (now a cathedral) in Santiago de Compostela, Galicia, where tradition has it that the remains of the Apostle St. James are buried.
Founded in 1647, Bodegas Julián Chivite is the oldest wine-producing dynasty in Spain; the winemaking tradition has been passed down through 11 generations of the Chivite family.
This wine is an outstanding success in the world of fruity rosé wines, an icon rosé showing a vibrant pink color and intense floral aromas. This wine is from the heart of Navarra, which has been strongly associated with its rosé wine (rosado). It is produced from Garnacha Tinta, the ideal variety for the production of rosé wines.
Navarra's proximity to the Bay of Biscay (Atlantic Ocean) in the northwest, the Pyrenees in the northeast and the Ebro River all combine to moderate temperatures created by the effects of the Mediterranean and the continental climate.
The wine is soft with flavors of strawberry and raspberry and a refreshing acidity. It's a perfect wine for a barbecue with friends, an intimate dinner or just an everyday meal. Serve chilled with pasta, risotto, vegetables, fish, and white meat.
