El Coto Rioja Rosado is a rosé that has a lot going on! The glass is brimming with aromas of strawberries and candied raspberries and it has a bright and lively palate, with a refreshing finish. The nose displays aromas of strawberries and candied raspberries. It is so versatile and pairs well with a variety of food.

El Coto was founded in 1970 in Rioja Alavesa and has grown from modest beginnings into one of the best known Rioja producers. Today El Coto has over 700 hectares of vineyard in production across the three Rioja DOCa sub-zones of Rioja Alta, Rioja Alavesa and Rioja Oriental. They also source grapes from all three areas, but mostly from Rioja Alavesa. Head winemaker César Fernandez oversees production, starting with hand picking into 350 kilogram crates to ensure the grapes arrive at the winery in pristine condition. Modern and intelligently designed, the emphasis in the winery is on temperature control and gentle handling of the grapes.

2018 was a complex year with a generally cold, wet spring delaying budbreak and the damp weather during flowering leading to higher than usual incidences of mildew in the vineyard. Early summer was initially rainy, but a hot August allowed the vines to catch up and ripening occurred gradually through the cooler than usual September which helped the grapes achieve great balance and flavour. Generally, the 2018 vintage was a generous harvest producing fresh wines with lower alcohols than recent years. The grapes were fermented in stainless steel temperature controlled tanks at 14-18ºC, over a period of 12-20 days. No malolactic fermentation is allowed to occur and the wine is bottled without ageing. Winemaker: César Fernandez
