Food Pairings for Quinta de la Rosa Dourosa Douro Rosada
This wine is made from traditional port varieties, mainly Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca and Tinta Roriz. The Rosé is made from the free run juice when making Vintage port. The lagares (granite tanks) are filled with grape and before they are trodden we open the taps and let the juice run off. This results in a more concentrated Vintage port and a rosé wine which is full bodied and deep in colour. After fermentation at low temperatures in small stainless steel tanks, the rosé was stored in stainless steel until it was bottled in May 2009. The 2008 Rosé is marginally paler pink in colour compared to previous years. It still has a good depth of colour and attractive red fruit flavours. It is a full bodied rosé with tannins well integrated with the fruit and a balanced structure with good equilibrium as a result of the exceptional year. Serve chilled, as an excellent refreshing aperitif. Given its structure, it is a perfect with food and can easily be drunk when eating summer salads, fish, chicken and other white meats.
