“Light brilliant pink. Incisive, mineral-accented citrus fruit and red berry scents, along with a suave floral nuance. Silky and sharply focused on the palate, showing juicy strawberry, orange zest and mineral qualities and a deeper suggestion of peach pit. Packs a lot of flavor but comes off lithe. The mineral and floral elements carry through a very long, precise, seamless finish. Drink now.” 

Winemaker Notes: 

"Hijo de Rubentis (Son of Rubentis) is a méthode traditionnelle sparkling rosé made from old-vine hondarrabi beltza grapes.  Ameztoi’s inspiration to use his area’s signature low alcohol and refreshing acidity as an ally to craft exceptional bottle-fermented sparkling wines has resulted in new possibilities for the region. It is exclusively produced from Ameztoi’s oldest hondarrabi beltza vineyard, planted high on the slopes rising above Getaria, an ancient Basque fishing village on Spain’s rugged northern coast. Released once a year in small quantities after an extended period of lees-aging in bottle, Hijo Rubentis rosé is built to improve in bottle, displaying the incredible potential of méthode traditionnelle sparkling wines in the Getariako Txakolina region." 

Alcohol: 12%
