2017 Bodegas Exopto Rioja Bozeto de Exopto Rose

Rioja, Spain

A powerful, savoury and structured Spanish Rosé.



About The Wine

Frenchman Tom Puyaubert came to Rioja by way of Bordeaux as a representative of a famous French oak cooper.

After getting to know the locals as customers, Tom fell in love with the traditions of the region and decided to fulfil his lifelong goal of producing his own wines and so Exopto (Latin for "To desire eagerly, long for.") was born.

He selects his fruit from special vineyards scattered around the cooler, higher altitude parts Rioja. He looks for old established vineyards on hungry soils and is now producing small batch wines of remarkable quality that deliver excellent value for money.

Tom's Rose is made in a serious style. It's wild fermented, aged on lees and portion is matured in barrel to give the wine a multi-layered, textural mouthfeel. It's dry, it's creamy, it's savoury, it's downright delicious.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Tom Puyaubert's Bozeto Rosé is crafted from 50% Garnacha and 50% Tempranillo, sourced from two, mature plots on the highland, mineral hillsides of Ábalos (El Silo) and San Vicente de la Sonsierra (Los Pozos) in the Rioja Alta. Made with the direct press method using wild yeasts, three quarters of the wine is raised in tank, on lees, while the rest is matured in used 600-litre demi-muid, bringing texture and complexity and a nip of structural gravitas to the blend. The result is a wine whose purity of fruit, creaminess of texture and depth of flavour should justify a higher price.

Blend : Grenache (50%), Tempranillo (50%)
ABV : 12.50%
Closure : Screw cap
Drink Until : 2023
Bottle Size : 750ml
