Tasting Notes

A pale salmon pink, refreshing and fruity rose, bursting with aromas of strawberries, raspberries, peardrops and pineapples. On the palate the wine is soft and fruity with a light spritz. A delicious summer wine with nice fresh acidity and a touch of sweetness on the finish.

Producer details

One of Portugal's largest and most progressive producers with 600 hectares spread across estates in five regions from Douro in the north to Alentejo in the south. Winemaker Francisco Antunes oversees what must be one of the most diverse ranges in Europe, from the 3rd largest Portuguese rose brand (Casal Mendes) to some of the country's most impressive premium reds from estates in Douro, Dao, Bairrada and Alentejo. Arguably, Francisco's greatest achievements lie between these extremes, a range of mid-priced wines from native varieties, full of character, quite distinctly Portuguese, but at the same time approachable and with fresh, modern fruit.

In the vineyard

The hand-picked grapes are sourced from selected growers in central and southern regions, where moderately old vines are tended traditionally in clay and sandy soils.

In the winery

Grapes are briefly macerated on the skins to obtain a touch of colour then gently pressed pneumatically. Cool fermentation in stainless steel vats controlled at 16 degrees. The wine is cold stabilised in tank for a brief period before bottling young.

Food Recommendations

Drink by itself well chilled or with seafood, hors d'oeuvres, simple salads, and spicy food such as Thai, Indian or Chinese.

In the press

What a rose! Strawberry and pepper, with a good hint of spritziness this is a perfect accompaniment to a hot summers day. It has a cleansing finish with a final zip of that strawberry fruit. Oz Clarke, Portugal Food & Travel Magazine
