Finca Collado Merlot Monastrell is an expressive rosé wine and different from that which the rest of the market offers, both in varieties and its very particular elaboration.
For a discerning consumer or someone who wants a different wine than other rosés in the market, and also for those who enjoy a fresh and subtle wine. The Merlot is a low-production vineyard with saline soil and the Monastrell is fermented and raised with its lees for 2 months.
With these differential characteristics we find a rosé with many nuances and that maintains its full potential until the end of the year and beginning of the next.SHEET

Finca Collado Merlot Monastrell is a rosé that has a structure and silkiness quite separately in the mouth, a result of the combination of vinification techniques.
VISUAL: It has a pale, bright color, which makes a pleasant feeling on the eye.
NOSE: The mature strawberry with notes of jam predominates on the nose, without being overly intense, with very subtle touches of coffee.
MOUTH: In the mouth it has a light entrance and its pass through the mouth is soft and refreshing, finished with a remarkable acidity that balances the wine. This balance in mouth gives way to an aftertaste where the aromas stand out of red fruits, leaving a feeling of having drunk a rosé with something else, because only here is where the contribution of the barrel in the Monastrell is subtly shown.
