Château d’Aqueria’s sandy soils are perfect for producing great rosés with exceptional balance between freshness and maturity. Its complexity comes from a blend of six varieties of red and white grapes. Grenache Noir, Syrah and Mourvèdre give exceptional colour and tannic structure whilst Clairette, Bourboulenc and Cinsault complete the blend beautifully bringing a generous variety of aromas and a fresh finish.

The grapes are meticulously destemmed and cooled before vatting. Then they are blended in pairs during 12-24 hours maceration to enhance the aromatic complexity. Once the perfect colour is obtained, the vat is bled and the pomace undergoes a slow pressing before being incorporated with the free-run juice. Following that, fermentation takes place in thermoregulated vats for 15 days.
