La Mirona Rose
La Mirona Rose 2021
Single vineyard selection
Light, pale rosé with a very aromatic nose with elegant aromas of ripe fruit, notes of pear and peach, a tasty, fresh and fleshy wine with a full-bodied finish.
La Mirona plot at Can Fontanals. Merlot planted in 1993 with a yield of 8,500 kg/ha. Deep, well-drained soil with a silt loam texture, very permeable and with good water retention capacity.
We came out of one of the poorest harvests in recent decades due to a year 2020 with a lot of mildew caused by excessive rain. From that December onwards there was a radical change, with the rainfall ceasing completely. Until the beginning of the harvest, only 163 l/m2 fell, much less than usual. This dry spell and the moderate spring temperatures made for an easy and relaxed agricultural year, only requiring one preventive treatment for mildew. The flowering of the different varieties was perfect, and a very good harvest was predicted, although meagre due to the lack of rain. It began normally and we were pleasantly surprised. We had expected less quantity and higher alcohol content, due to the low rainfall, a year of higher sugar concentration and lower yields, but this was not the case. In short, a very balanced harvest.
