Ochoa Lágrima Rosa
Wines made by Javier Ochoa speak of an immense respect to the environment, to vineyard, to lots of work in the vineyard and to years of experience. Many tests, many successes, love for family (and for wine, one more in our family) and a solid respect for traditions improved by technology.
When Javier Ochoa created this wine in the 90´s it was with the aim of making the best possible rosé he could from his own grapes, using the typical Navarrese method of “sangrado”, or bleeding. His daughter, Adriana, has since taken up her fathers legacy.
Made with grapes Garnacha, Merlot & Cabernet Sauvignon from vineyard El Bosque from Traibuenas.
Ochoa Lágrima Rosa is made by “sangrado” or bleeding: the traditional Navarrese method for making rosé wines.
In this process, the grapes are lightly crushed (not pressed, so they release the lágrima or tears) and this juice is allowed to remain in contact with the flesh and skins for a time (4-6 hours), before being transferred into a stainless steel vat to ferment at a controlled temperature of 18ºC. Ochoa Rosado de Lágrima is one of our best-loved wines at national level and one of our most long-standing products.
Ochoa Rosado de Lágrima is one of our most valued wines by many markets for years. We recommend its consumption all year round, because it matches very well vegetable dishes, grilled dishes and pasta or rice. It matches also fish and seafood.
Available in 75cl. and 150cl.
