The good weather is on the way and, step by step, Spain is heading towards the ‘new normality’ that will allow us to recover the routines and good habits that we have missed so much during recent months.
It is time to raise a toast and celebrate reunions with friends and family, and why not do so with Pagos de Araiz Rosé 2019, a new wine that offers extra freshness for the summer. This rosé wine from the Pagos de Araiz winery in Navarra, belonging to Masaveu Bodegas, is an excellent choice to savour the hottest months of the year, good for drinking alone or with those whose company we have been longing to enjoy throughout the lockdown.
Pagos de Araiz Rosé is truly comparable to the subtlety of the Rosé wines from the French Provence that receive such good reviews and are so popular in the most prestigious restaurants and wine bars around the world.
In the French Provence, no summer goes by without toasting with a glass of pale rosé like this and in the hot summer months we have no excuse for not enjoying the same elegance here in Spain, with Pagos de Araiz Rosé. Fruity, fresh, modern, light and excellent value for money. This rosé reminds us of this type of French wines, but with a Spanish flair. This Rosé wine from Navarra is capable of pleasing all types of palates, with enormous versatility, due to its refreshing, modern nature.
Thanks to its fresh, vibrant, moreish flavor, Pagos de Araiz Rosé offers a modern vision, adapted to current times. These sensations are not only present when we drink the wine, but also when we appreciate the design of the bottle, with a modern label adapted to consumer preferences.
With an attractive bright pale salmon colour, 100% grenache grapes offer Pagos de Araiz Rosé 2019 outstanding aromas, such as wild strawberries and fresh raspberries. Notes of white flowers with light and mild citrus jelly sensations.
The attack is lively and fresh, full and moreish, fresh red fruit dominates with sensations of strawberries and red currants. The mid-palate is long with a fruity finish and the persistent taste allows us to continue enjoying the flavour.
This wine is perfect with any type of food, from canapés, cheeses and cold meats to larger meals such as pastas, rices or white meats, and the recommended serving temperature is between 8 and 10 degrees.
Recommended retail price: 6€.
Bodegas Pagos de Araiz
With the acquisition of the Pagos de Aráiz estate in Olite by the Masaveu Family in 2000, began a fresh and daring project in the traditional D.O. Navarra. This venture began with the construction of an ultra-modern 14,000-m2 château-style winery situated just outside the medieval town of Olite. Over the following three years, on the 400 hectare estate, 240 hectares of family-owned vineyards were planted with several grape varietals (tempranillo, graciano, grenache, merlot, cabernet sauvignon and syrah).
Their innovative management method and the wide variety of wine tourism activities on offer connect the historical, natural and winemaking importance of the area to art and gastronomy. The ideal scenario for a brilliant and promising future, linked to the values of Navarra, a classical yet emerging winemaking territory.
The painstaking care taken in the vineyard and the winery guarantee successful winemaking. The combination of the vines, the state-of-the-art technology and pioneering control procedures, award an average 500,000 bottles annually.
The Masaveu family first invested in the wine sector in 1974, when they purchased Bodegas Murua, however the family’s first vineyards date back to the middle of the 19th century, precisely in Castellar del Vallés where the family originally comes from and where Federico Masaveu Rivell began a journey to be continued one century later by his descendants.
Masaveu Bodegas has grown to become a leader in the sector as a result of the quality of their winemaking in different DO´s, their sustainable philosophy and utmost respect for the land in their estate owned vineyards, thanks to which they transmit the unique personality of each terroir in each and every bottle. This being the common denominator in each and every project led by Bodegas Masaveu in different parts and regions of the country: Murua (DOCa Rioja), Fillaboa (DO Rias Baixas), Pagos de Aráiz (DO Navarra), Leda (Vino de la Tierra de Castilla y León) and Valverán (Asturias).
