This region is famous for a unique rosé called clarete, which is made by co-fermenting red Tempranillo and white Albillo Mayor. Traslanzas wines are made by two women, Ana Martín and Maria Pinacho using grapes from Maria’s family vineyards in Mucientes, close to the region’s capital city Valladolid. Their vineyards are dedicated to old vine Tempranillo (here it is called Tinto del País) planted in 1945.Their wines are fermented with indigenous yeast, no fining or filtration takes place and minimal sulphur is added. 

The low temperature fermentation (14ºC) enhances and preserves the varietal aromas, where the red fruits (strawberry and raspberry) are the main featured descriptors, together with menthol tones and ripe stone fruits. Dressed in a beautiful pink strawberry-salmon of good intensity, in the mouth it is fresh, with a lot of volume and body, with a long finish full of aromatic sensations.
