Murviedro presents Sericis Cepas Viejas Pinot Noir Rosé, its most exclusive and complex rosé, using the free-run juice of Pinot Noir grapes to make a wine that is aged for two months in a French oak foudre.
Murviedro chooses Pinot Noir to make its highend rosé wine in the purest Provençal style, completing its collection of exclusive Sericis, which now includes five references, also including the monovarietals made with Merseguera, Monastrell, Bobal and Viognier.
The new Sericis Cepas Viejas Pinot Noir Rosé has a glamorous style that goes straight to the heart of anyone trying it for the first time. Rosé wines are light-bodied, but that doesn’t mean some of them are not great wines – a delicacy for discerning, expert palates.
The pale colour of this wine is not an aim we have pursued in itself. It is the result of the way we handle the grapes, seeking elegance, freshness and character. Our winemaking process is thorough, carefully selecting the best grapes of the Pinot Noir variety, which are gently crushed and macerated for only a short time on their skins. The free-run juice is obtained only by gravity, without pressing. It ferments at low temperature with yeasts selected from the wild ones in the vineyard. Finally, the wine remains for two months in a French oak foudre to stabilise it and give complexity before bottling.
The Sericis Cepas Viejas Pinot Noir Rosé is outstanding for its refined profile. It has its own essence and is unlike any other rosé. It is a bright and pale pink in colour, with a very fruity aroma: intense red fruit and lactic notes on a slightly toasted background, the result of being refined in French oak. On the palate it is fresh, intense and very pleasant, with balanced acidity.
This rosé is a wine to be enjoyed during moments of relaxation and fun. It belongs to a certain lifestyle and is an excellent aperitif to enjoy on a terrace, in the garden or by the pool. This rosé is the ideal accompaniment to tapas, pasta, rice dishes, poultry, grilled fish and Asian food.
In winter it can be fully enjoyed at about 12 degrees, but its ideal serving temperature is between 6 and 8ºC, placed securely in an ice bucket.
