LA ROSA RED
Producer Notes 2017
Traditional port varieties, mainly Touriga Nacional (60%) and Touriga Franca (12%) with 8% Tinta Roriz, 5% Sousão and the rest 15% come from old vineyard, mixed field blend.
The terroir in the Douro is still largely unexplored and by making wines with, harmony and equilibrium from our vineyards, we try to enable the grapes to express themselves in the bottle. The La Rosa style is to make well defined wines without too much extraction, tannin or oak. Wines that are rich and full bodied whilst being fresh and lively with a good acidity and minerality.
Being quite approachable as a young wine, it can either be drunk now or kept for up to 5 or so years. Serve at cellar temperatures, the 2017 is ideal with any meat dish or cheese. A versatile wine, it also goes well with spicy dishes as well as robust fish such as cod.
