Mas Rodó – Riesling

Riesling. D.O. Penedès

The cold winter of the Mediona area, with frequent snowfall and cold nights that allow long periods of maturation, together with the type of rocky soil in which this variety is planted, offers ideal conditions to grow Riesling vines, a grape that has developed unique characteristics at MAS RODÓ. This is also why our take on Riesling is somewhat different from the traditional approach of central Europe. Our Riesling is absolutely dry, allowing for a better balance with the acidity that should always shine in a Riesling, with light tropical touches brought by the warmth of our days and fermentation in French oak, giving it different nuances and a character in line with our way of approaching the variety. An example of balance, delicacy and elegance.

Tasting Note

Yellow color, with greenish reflections. Complex and elegant aromas with memories of pineapple and tropical fruits. In the mouth fresh and long with a feeling of sweetness that makes it broad and sweet.

Pairing

Our Riesling pairs with all kinds of seafood and fresh fish, foie gras, creamy and blue cheeses, and smoked foods. It’s also a great wine to relax with while cooking or to drink with friends.
