Viticulture and Characteristics of the Season
Organic agriculture is the main vineyard management for the grapes that originate this wine. Granitic soil, of great depth and medium fertility, gives the ideal conditions for its development. Native species and effect of the north wind (tramontana), set the unique characteristics of this estate.
The harvest was carried out manually at the end of August, in a season characterized by beginning later and of excellent sanitary conditions at harvest time.
Winemaking and Ageing
To respect its delicate aromatic profile, the freshly harvested grapes are kept in a cold room for 24 hours before being carefully processed and pressed. Once the must has been clarified, it is previously fermented in stainless steel tanks under strict temperature control.
Halfway through fermentation, 50% of the volume goes to barrels. Therefore, the 6-month aging of Caminito is carried out both in stainless steel tanks, which protects its freshness, and in barrels, where through batonnage of its fine lees, a greater balance, character, and elegance are achieved.
Tasting Notes and Food Pairing
Elegant pale pink colour, bright and very attractive to the eye. Fresh and fruity nose, with notes of currants, strawberries, pomegranate, and a touch of roses. Delicately elegant, with the power of Empordà’s Grenache, on palate is soft, savoury, unctuous and round, with a mineral touch and slightly salty at the end.
All these elements make it an ideal wine to match marine dishes such as seafood paella or Galician-style octopus, thanks to its good acidity and that tannic point of the variety. It is also ideal for appetizers, together with a beef carpaccio, or a fresh salad of summer tomatoes, basil and burrata.
