Tasted and Confirmed #5 – Boya Rosé
Boya Rosé is a wine with structure, body and aromatic complexity. It was supposed to accompany a meal, not unlike pool roses.
It seems that the rainy season is over. With that, rosé wines are the great jokers of autumn. This week I had the privilege of tasting Boya Rosé, Pinot Noir and Garnacha, 2022, from Leyda Valle, Chile. I did the tasting at Mistral Importer (206 Sul), in the presence of winemaker Ignacio Casali of Garcés Silva Family Vineyards, the winery that produces these wines.
Boya Rosé is a wine with structure, body and aromatic complexity. It was supposed to accompany a meal, unlike pool roses, which are lighter, less persistent, and don’t require food to be savored.
The interesting thing about this Gases Silva rose that immediately caught my attention was the color, as it is a darker pink. The winemaker explained to me that the 2022 vintage used a different section of the Pinot Noir grape and that this one had more color. Since the wines of this winery are organic, and indeed the wines are vinified with minimal intervention, Ignacio thought it best to leave the color, rather than adding charcoal or any other chemical product to change it, which would result in a loss of quality. the final result.
I would like to inform readers that the vast majority of very light rosé wines with a peach or salmon color, especially when made from more intensely colored varieties such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec, are usually charred to achieve super lightness. for: color The use of this substance changes the taste and varietal aromas of the grapes, leading to a loss of the final quality of the wine.
Don’t be fooled by appearances, things aren’t always what they seem. Darker rosé wines often have better qualities than super clear ones that use charcoal.
