The Quinta do Romeu Douro Rosado is an incredible example of a serious rosé, coming from a region that is known for mainly red wines. All organic and handpicked grapes of Tinta Roriz, Touriga Nacional, and Tinta Cão come into the cellar for manual selection and sorting. This rosé is not a result of bleeding the estate’s red wines, but made with as much care as the rest. The stalks are completely removed and followed by a gentle crushing, with slow fermentation in stainless steel. The Touriga Nacional is the only variety that sees 6 hours on the skins to give color to the Rosado, as the others are pressed off the skins immediately. The finished wine is light and fresh, yet full of expressive fruit, with spice and lovely texture.
