Contreras Ruiz, Édalo Rosado, DO Condado de Huelva, Spain, 2020

Producer Profile

Next to the National Park of Donana, an area of preserved natural beauty, Bodegas Contreras Ruiz champions the rich, full bodied Zalema grape.

Located in the deep south of Spain, on the Atlantic coast close to Portugal, this is the perfect site to grow this local variety organically. Their goal is to make complex wines, where this single grape variety is expressed in different ways according to site and soil.

Viticulture

An intensive berry selection is done in the vineyard to reach a yeild of 7,000kg per hectare.

Winemaking

Macerated on the skins to get the colour, then the must is extracted after alcoholic fermentation and rested on the fine lees until bottling.

Oak Treatment

No oak treatment

Tasting Note

Pale salmon-pink colour, red berries on the nose. Surprisingly weighty and fleshy and well structured despite its youth with excellent balance between freshness and persistence.

Food Matching

Salads, rice, pasta, seafood, vegetables, white and red meats due to its good structure in palate. The ideal temperature for serving is between 10 to 12ºC.
