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. The wine was fermented in small stainless steel vats and then matured in Allier French oak casks, mainly Francois Freres, Taransaud and Seguin Moreau.
The wine is very elegant and complex on the nose with well defined aromas of raspberry and cherry and a touch of herbal undertones reminiscent of the Douro hills giving the wine certain freshness and vibrancy to it. Medium bodied with rounded tannins and an agreeable persistency coming from the wine's balanced acidity. It has a good equilibrium where all aromas and flavours seem subtle and natural and in line with each other.
