Tempranillo. DO Ribera del Duero

Folk tradition setting the trend

A “clarete” that reinterprets the true tradition of Ribera and reminds us why it was and still is essential.

KORDE Rosé is synonymous with personality, brightness and freshness.

A wine so tasty and expressive that you can’t miss it. And you come back to it because it always fits in, although its true place is where it is shared.

“Bright raspberry pink with aromas of violets, blood oranges, plums and candied apples. Medium to full-bodied, with bright acidity. Rich, fruity style. To drink now”

James Suckling

  • KORDE is a unique rosé made with Tempranillo grapes from “Cardisanto” – our most expressive vineyard – and a small percentage of Albillo. On this peak, at an altitude of 885 metres (one of the highest in Ribera del Duero), temperature changes are even greater than in the rest of the region, and the vines grow in white, chalky soils. The characteristics of the site give KORDE grapes a perfect balance between acidity and freshness.
  • Part of our rosé is fermented in concrete eggs with exhaustive temperature controls to maintain the colour, brightness, varietal aromas and mineral characteristics of the wine. The other is aged for six months in new French oak barrels from the Tronçais and Bertrange forests. The vigour and complexity of KORDE come from the combination of these two processes, giving our wine refined oak notes and an elegant velvety texture while respecting the abundant fruit aromas and flavours.

Tasting notes

Ageing: 1 winter Keep: 10 years

Bright red with hypnotising transparency.

Intense aroma of sour strawberries caramelised by a pleasant sweetness from ageing on the lees

Sharp, refreshing wine, with pleasant acidity and an unctuous character that encourages you to take another sip.

The origin

KORDE Rosé is made with a dominant percentage of Tempranillo grapes (90%), obtained from the “Cardisanto” summit. On this peak, at an altitude of 885 metres (one of the highest in Ribera del Duero), temperature changes are even greater than in the rest of the designation of origin, with snowy winters, very hot summers, and temperature fluctuations of more than 20ºC between night and day.

KORDE Rosé also draws on a smaller percentage of Albillo (>10%), a native white grape variety that lives camouflaged in our oldest Tempranillo vines. These vines grow on hills where they receive enormous sun exposure, on chalky, sandy soils. The particularities of the environment and the unique characteristics of “Cardisanto” give the fruit a profound personality that is reflected in every bottle of KORDE Rosé.

Vine-growing and harvest

The grapes are harvested by hand in the early hours of the morning to keep the grapes fresh and the skins smooth. Once at the winery, a second selection is made on tables, keeping only the best bunches.

Our work in the fields is characterised by utmost respect for the environment combined with biodiversity and the incorporation of the best-established biodynamic practices. We are committed to a model of sustainable vine-growing to make our wines a true reflection of the terroir from which they originate, with the grape taking centre stage.

Wine-making and ageing

After 7 hours in a tank, the must is bled off gently to extract only the lighter coloured free-run juice, without over-pressing or over-heating. One part is then transferred to concrete eggs where it undergoes controlled fermentation and the other part to 500L. French oak barrels, where the wine ages on fine lees for six months, with periodic batonnage.

Recommended consumption

The wine is ready to be enjoyed as soon as you have the bottle in your hands, but spending at least 1 year in bottle helps it to reach its best.

We recommend serving the wine at 8-9º.

Pairing | KORDE Rosé

“Korde rosé is both primal and modern. As such, it goes amazingly well with hot, spicy finger foods, such as Mexican tacos, Indian thali or Neapolitan pizza, refreshing their spicy power and refining the powerful flavour of these savoury dishes.”
