Granite Post Rosado

Country: Spain
Region: Rías Baixas
Grape: Albariño, Caiño Tinto, Espadeiro
Colour: White (Rosé)
Bottle Size: 75cl
Alcohol: 11.5%
Vintage: 2017

British-born Robert Cripps, and his wife Kim, relocated to Rias Baixas in 2015 via spells in Napa, Burgundy and latterly the Languedoc, where they owned and ran Domaine du Pujol for 22 years before moving to Galicia.

We are excited to be working with Robert and Kim from the very beginning of their adventure in Galicia.  

The first vintage of their Albariño was 2016, their rosé 2017.  They currently source fruit from two old parcels of vineyards (60 – 100 years old) in Salnés, the most northerly and coolest sub-zone of Rias Baixas, with both vineyards within 5 kilometres of the sea.  

The rosé showcases their true pioneer spirit, this being the first rosé ever produced in Galicia.   A blend of Caiño Tinto, with 20% Albariño added during maceration – an old Provencal trick.  Partly fermented and aged in stainless steel, partly in old oak.  The rosé will continue to evolve as Robert experiments with other Galician varietals including Mencia and Espadeiro.
