2008 Pinord "La Nansa" Vino de Aguja Penedes Spain

2008 Bodegas Pinord "La Nansa" Vino de Aguja Rose Penedes Spain
Suggested retail price $8-$12
Distributed by Vinaio in NYC

FYI: "La Nansa" means "fish net" which explains the sort of "hamac" or "fish net" on the label. And "Vino de Aguja" litterally means "wine of needle" referring to the small size of the bubbles. This is the reason why this wine can also found under "Pearl wines", also referring to the pearling sensation in the palate.

Made from 60% Grenache and 40% Merlot, this rose wine has been produced following a second fermentation in an isobaric tank. Thus the bubbles in this "pearl wine" with a pressure of approximately 2 bar.

Bright red color, slightly bubbling, this wine is light, with a fruity mouthfill. Pleasant red berry, raspberry and strawberry flavors pretty much defined this fun, uncomplicated summery wine. No added sugar, it doesn't taste sweet but slight fruity. Fresh and simple, easy to drink, it will be good for picnic.
