Quinta De La Rosa douROSA Red 2016
Traditional port varieties, mainly 52% Touriga Nacional with the remaining amounts other mixed varieties (Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão)
Dourosa red is an easy drinking wine to be drunk now or within the next five years. It is a versatile wine that can be drunk slightly chilled at (15-16¼C) accompanied with lighter style food or drunk at a higher temperature (18¼C) with heavier dishes.
This wine is perfect with Italian cuisine, white meat such as chicken or pork and fish.
“The 2016 Tinto douROSA is unoaked and comes in at 13.5% alcohol. This is a fruity little Beaujolais-styled wine, but it typically does nicely. Its fresh fruit and vivid flavour are supported by its structure as a rule, some acidity to go with ripe tannins. Its freshness makes it sing. So, too, this year. This is very pretty, a perfect summer red, something you can drink casually and a little cooler than normal. It is nicely priced and made for immediate consumption. It may hold a bit, but drink it as young as possible. 87 Points.”
