are made by Bodegas Esteban Martin in the denomination of Carinena DO. Carinena DO was created in 1932 and is located 56km southwest of Zaragoza, part of the autonomous regions of Aragon on northern Spain. Vinedos y Bodegas Esteban Martin
was established in 2003 and is a family owned winery located in the Alfamen in the heart of Carinena. The vineyards are situated at the foot of the Sierra de la Virgen mountains between 400m and 800m above sea level, with dry, stony soil. The dry climate has quite extreme temperatures but is influenced by the cold, dry Cierzo wind which helps to maintain low humidity. Traditional grapes are cultivated (Garnacha, Tempranillo, Mazuela, Macabeo and Muscat) but there are also plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Chardonnay. Bodegas Esteban Martinís winery combines the ancient tradition of Carinena with the very latest wine-making technology to produce structured, intense red wines and aromatic, harmonious and persistent white wines with distinctive modern personality. Vinem 2011 Rosado (Rosť) is a 50 / 50 blend of Garnacha and Syrah.
Vinem Rosado (Rosť) is a brilliant deep raspberry colour, with intense aromas of strawberry, straberry and cream. There are also floral rose notes. On the palate it is full and clean, with a vibrant acidity and textured lush berry fruits, lingering and persistent on the finish.
