Traditional dry farmed viticulture. Organic Gobelet trained vines. Cultivated completely by hand.

Primarily slate soils intermixed with small quantities of quartz.

Mediterranean climate with an Atlantic influence. Very cold winters and very warm hot summers.

Hand-harvested and stored in small baskets. A light saignée is performed followed by a fermentation with indigenous yeast in French oak barrels.

3 months in French oak Burgundy and Bordeaux barrels.

The nose is perfumed by red fruit and floral aromatics with smoky and citric notes. Raspberry and orange persist on a long finish. This wine is the only Galician rosé fermented and aged in barrels. Avancia Rosé is not technically a D.O. Valdeorras wine as rosé style wines are not recognized by the D.O. An extremely unique, refreshing, varietal rosé.
