Vinha da Defesa Rosé 2010

Member Review by Damaris Rivera:

I tried this wine based on the review from Wine Enthusiast, 11.2008 in which they gave this 85 Points: “With its grey/pink color, aromas of cherry and raspberry and its fresh fruity flavor, this is a great aperitif rose. The taste shows some caramel and sweetness, crispened with acidity.” Wine Enthusiast, 11.2008 I enjoyed this with sushi but this would work nicely with any Asian cuisine. Would also be nice as an aperitif.

In the heart of Alentejo region, 180 Km east of Lisbon, in Reguengos de Monsaraz, the Herdade do Esporão was aquired by Finagra with the main porpuse of producing wines of great quality. From 1975 until 1979, the Herdade do Esporão was occupied during the revolutionary and agricultural periods. Only after this period Finagra was allowed to proceed the winery project. Our modern cellars were built in 1987. A new stage of Finagra project was acomplished. In 1989 the first wine "Esporão" was considered one of the best Portuguese wines and three years later the brand "Monte Velho" was launched. In 1995, after our brands were considered among the best ones, new investments were made. A new area of vineyard was planted and the existent was completely renovated. A dam with 4.000.000 m3 capacity was built, feeding a drip irrigation system that covers all the vineyard. The purchase of Perdigões Estate, with 180 ha of vineyards, the expansion of the cellar and the construction of the wine tourism complex are some of the most recent investments of this dinamic company developing the "Herdade do Esporão".

Although only small quantities are made of this wine, the quality is high. Intense floral and citrus fruit aromatics compliment a racy, dry palate ending refreshing and clean. This wine is great to sip on or served with grilled fish.
