Escudo Real Vinho Verde Rosé, Minho, Portugal, 2018 (ROSE)
Overview of the Wine
An exhuberant rosé Vinho Verde with abundant fruit and zesty minerals on the palate that speak to the warmer temperatures of summertime.
Lightly spritzy and with a low ABV of 10.5%, it's ideal for daytime sipping. An explosion of tart strawberry sherbet, raspberry, and watermelon sorbet sprinkled with sea salt. It has tangy, quartzy minerality and a little puff of clean white blossoms. Escudo Real Vinho Verde Rosé makes a refreshing companion to prosciutto, smoked mackerel, sharp cheddar sandwiches, or sweet buns with meyer lemon curd.
Grape / Blend
60% Touriga Nacional, 40% Espadeiro
Very refreshing rosé from Vinho Verde made from Touriga Nacional and Espadeiro. As you’d expect there’s some spritz which gives a zippy fizz on the tongue, adding even more to the overall refreshing mouthfeel. It’s light bodied – alcohol is just 10.5% – with aromas of roses, cranberries, and strawberries. Easy and fun, and perfect for the summer months.
