Rhodes, nowadays Roses, founded in the 8th century BC by the Rhodians, is the oldest Greek colony in Catalonia, and the Rodes and the Albera mountains most probably form the oldest wine-making landscape in the Iberian peninsula.
The rose seen from below which decorates the label is the symbol of RHODE on the ancient coins (drachms) of the colony.
The grapes were hand harvest and the different varieties were fermented separately in stainless steel fermentation tanks kept at a temperature of 24/26ºC. Two pump-overs per day were carried out, and the tanks were emptied 30-40 days after the start of fermentation, depending on the variety. Prolonged vatting was determined by tasting.
Malolactic fermentation took place in the tank.
The wine underwent minimal clarification and filtering treatment before being bottled.
