Region: Bierzo, Spain

Varietal: 100% Mencia

Tasting notes: Pale pink. Aromas and flavors of strawberries, red-currant and white pepper show very good clarity and energy. Concentrated yet lithe rosado, with a nervy acid structure providing shape and lift. Finishes taut and minerally, with an echo of red berries. This dry, floral rosé exhibits strawberry flavors and pairs well with pizza, white meats, salmon and grilled vegetables.

Producer: Liquid Geography is produced from vineyards owned by the Guerra winery, which farms 1/3 of all vineyards in the Bierzo region. Out of the 3,000ha (7,413 acres) of vineyard land in Bierzo, Guerra takes care of 1,000ha (2,471 acres), however, they only make wine with the best 10% of grapes. This rigorous selection process allows Liquid Geography to show consistent extraordinary quality. To express gratitude to the many who have helped over the years, Olé & Obrigado donates 100% of Liquid Geography's profits in equal parts to: the TJ Martell Foundation in its search for cancer cures, World Central Kitchen an organization devoted to providing meals in the wake of natural disasters, and Wheeling Forward to help people with disabilities experience life to the fullest.

Vineyard and Winemaking: Made with Mencia grapes from 57-year-old vines in the region of Bierzo in northwest Spain, a region with a wine history that dates back to the Roman times. The free-run juice is drained at low temperature without previous maceration and under an inert atmosphere. Alcoholic fermentation occurs in stainless steel tanks for 12 days at 12C. The wine sees no oak whatsoever to preserve the brightest, freshest flavors. Some of the carbonation is kept in the wine during fermentation to exhibit some fizz at the time of drinking. Vines planted since 1963. Tended in river stone and clay soil at 525 m (1,722 ft) elevation. This is a vegan wine.
