About the Wine

A very light red, or a deep rosado depending on your inclination, this is an unusual Spanish wine made from an obscure grape named Girò. It is native to Alicante, but has also found its way over to Sardinia, where it is more prevalent. This is a very modern take on an ancient varietal. 

Just a few days on the skins in steel tanks really harnesses the aromatic potential of the grape which is pretty and floral. Vibrant and fruit-forward, the texture is supple and juicy; a wine that demands to be chilled down. The vines grow over limestone on a jut of headland that faces out to the Balearics and is surrounded on almost all sides by the sea. It's fitting then, that a salty twang of ocean breeze has found its way into the wine too.
