Pale pink. Aromas and flavors of strawberries, red-currant and white pepper show very good clarity and energy. Concentrated yet lithe rosado, with a nervy acid structure providing shape and lift. Finishes taut and minerally, with an echo of red berries.
Founded in 1999 by Patrick Mata and Alberto Orte, Ole Imports has always held their wines to four fundamental principles: terroir, quality fruit, exceptional winemaking, and exceptional value. Their commitment to these principles inspired the name of their newest creation, Liquid Geography. Mr. Mata explains, "Location in wine matters. Oftentimes, people associate the flavors of a grape to be always the same regardless of where it's grown. Liquid Geography comes from a very unique place where Monastrell shows very different qualities from the "norm". When grown in the higher elevations of the southeastern region of Spain, Monastrell grapes produce floral, uplifted and very elegant wines.
Mata and Orte have a worked closely with the T.J. Martell Foundation, supporting their various fundraising events over the years. Most recently, the duo played host at the 2012 World Tour of Wine which honored Robert M. Parker, Jr., famed critic and founder of The Wine Advocate. With the upcoming release of Liquid Geography, they will bring their support of the T.J. Martell Foundation's cancer research initiatives to a greater level, culminating at this year's World Tour of Wine event in New York City.
