Urbina Rosado Rioja is a beautiful pale pink Rosé Rioja and is a blend of two of the famous Rioja grape varieties, Tempranillo and Garnacha.
Bodegas Urbina is a small, traditional and family-owned Rioja wine estate. This single estate is located in Cuzcurrita de Rio Tiron on the north-western boundary of DOC Rioja. Urbina has 75 hectares of vineyards at two main vineyard sites – the first site is at Cuzcurrita de Rio Turon, an area well-known for producing Riojas capable of ageing for many years ideal for Gran Reservas. The other vineyards are located at Uruñuela, in the heart of the Rioja DOC, which consistently produces wines of great quality and body. For four generations, the Urbina family had dedicated themselves to producing Rioja wines and, following in his father’s footsteps, Pedro Urbina is the current wine-maker. In 1976 the family took the decision to bottle and age all the wine made themselves, rather than selling grapes to other wine producers, and the single estate Bodegas Urbina was created.
After harvest the grapes for the Urbina Rosado Rioja undergo 48 hours cold maceration at 10c prior to temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel vats at 18c. This is a fresh, modern and fruity style of Rosé wine, perfect on a summer’s day.
