Quinta de la Rosa douROSA 2016

Quinta de la Rosa 'douROSA' is a red wine made from traditional port varieties, mainly 52% Touriga Nacional with the remaining amounts other mixed varieties (Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão). The terroir in the Douro is still largely unexplored and by making wines with balance, harmony and equilibrium from their own vineyards, La Rosa try to enable the grapes to express themselves in the bottle. Their 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. The douROSA wines are blended to be easy, approachable wines for immediate drinking. Attractive violet colours, red fruit flavours on the palate, seductive, joyous with soft young tannins.
