Esenzia Old Vine Rosé 2021
Organically grown old vine Grenache is given the blush treatment in this dry rosé from Aragon.
Taken from the Yago Aznar family vineyards in Lécera, select batches of red Garnacha grapes are harvested, cooled and macerated for 8 hours prior to fermentation, enough to provide the perfect amount of colour and tannins to the white juice.
Bright raspberry-pink in colour, the nose is a salivating mix of wild berries and zesty citrus fruits, plump and rounded with raspberries and strawberries to the fore, generous in flavour and length, and finishing dry.
Serve this up with spicy chicken skewers on the barbecue, it’s just perfect.

The Yago Aznar family belong to this region of Lécera in Aragón, attuned to the extreme climate and tough landscape with a shared passion for wine-making spanning four generations of viticulturists. Today the 70 hectare estate is run by siblings Paula and Víctor Yago Aznar and their organically certified operation is predicated on the principle of 'Tempore' or time, or more precisely 'seedtime', leaving the vines to express themselves free of intervention and with the utmost respect for the land.
Here they cultivate exclusively autochthonous varieties of the region, Garnacha, Tempranillo, Macabeo and white Garnacha grapes, with 70+ year old traditional Garnacha bush vines coexisting with younger fully trellised vineyards. The entire estate is organic with a new state of the art winery built in 2002.
