It has now been half a century since the Coviñas Group began making ENTERIZO, one of the wines of the Utiel-Requena Designation of Origin that has won most competition medals, all the while providing utmost drinking pleasure.
Enterizo white (made with the Macabeo grape) and Enterizo rosé (made with Bobal) have recently been awarded a gold medal each by the prestigious international publication Gilbert&Gaillard. Enterizo rosado was rated at of 90 points (out of 100) in a blind tasting, placing it among the publication’s most highly rated rosé wines.
Gilbert&Gaillard is a French publication, and its experienced tasting committee is made up of French sommeliers, winemakers and journalists, each of whom year on year tastes more than 3,000 wines from all over the world, only giving scores to those wines they consider to be of superior quality.
Enterizo Macabeo is made from grapes grown on the winery’s very best vineyards of this grape. It is a fresh, young wine, typically Mediterranean in character. After a short maceration (skin-contact time), the must is fermented using careful temperature control in stainless-steel tanks before subsequent tangential, or crossflow, filtering prior to bottling.
Enterizo rosé is made with the native regional variety, Bobal. After cold maceration and a gentle pressing, the clean must is transferred for fermentation in stainless steel tanks at carefully controlled temperature and subsequently bottled, again after tangential filtration. This end result is a rosé wine with lots of fresh fruit, making for an appealing, fresh and aromatic wine.
