Condesa Patricia bottle

Condesa Patricia

Rosé, 2015

Patricia Girón grew up in and around the vineyards where her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother all grew grapes and made wine. Rosé from Tempranillo grapes was always served at family dinners, so Patricia crafted this one with Blue Apron in a similarly light, bright style that pairs with the fresh and grilled foods typically served in warm months. Some of the grapes in this wine come from three small vineyard plots that Patricia’s family still owns and farms.

Profile

Pairing

Rosés from areas with warm climates such as California and Australia can do double duty. Often darker in color and made with more intense berry, cherry and peach flavors, these rosés can still pair with lighter dishes, but won’t get overpowered by something richer, like a burger.

TASTING TIP

Note the subtle aroma and flavor of white pepper, a signature of Tempranillo rosés. This makes the wine a great match for Mexican fare.

A savory, aromatic pesto is the perfect complement for a refreshingly fruity rosé.

Pour a bright, fruity rosé to draw out the vegetables' sweetness and make the lime sour cream taste even tangier.

Rosé is right at home with peppers, drawing out their sweetness. Plus, this wine's fruitiness complements the salmon's richness.

A fruity rosé is perfect for cooling down spicy heat and elevating the bright tomato flavors in the dish.

A fruity rosé is great for cutting through the cheesy richness and drawing out the flavors of the squash, corn, and pepper.

Do what they do in the Mediterranean all summer long: pair your caprese with a fruity rosé—and enjoy the day.

More About The Wine

Though this wine comes from Tempranillo vineyards throughout Castilla, many of the grapes were grown in La Mancha—a hot, dry plateau in central Spain, 2,400 feet above sea level. (It’s precisely the climate in which you’d want a crisp, refreshing rosé.) Most of the vines are 30 years old, planted in rocky riverbeds rich in nutrients below the surface.

DID YOU KNOW?

Tempranillo grapes have dark, thick skins. Only a gentle crushing of the grapes is needed to impart a pink color to the wine.
