This magical can rosé is produced exclusively from Carlos Lopez de Lacalle’s family vineyards in Navarra Spain. It is 100% Garnacha from local clones that the Lopez de Lacalle family has been farming since 1996. The principals remain the same. Each can starts with the obsession for the careful cultivation of each individual vine. Never using fertilizers or synthetic chemicals. The carful selection of each grape by hand. The gentle press of gravity to extract the juice combined with the natural transformation of native yeast evolving into delicious rosé.
The Vineyards are grown between 450 and 500 meters laid on clay-limestone soils. The vineyard is farmed using only organic viticulture. No herbicides are ever used. The average yield is 5 kg per hectare. Pressing occurs naturally by gravity over 4 - 5 hours. 100% free run juice. Vinivication is done in stainless steel vats to protect the freshness of Garnacha. Fermentation is carried out for 18 - 20 days.
