Quinta De La Rosa White 2016
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.
Grapes from old vines local to the region and often used for making into white port – Viosinho (45%), Rabigato (20%), Códega do Larinho (30%) and Gouveio. (5%).
The La Rosa white has a very perfumed nose with citric and floral aromas. On the palate the wine is quite full bodied, very soft and seductive. It is an intense wine, full of flavour without any excesses, very beautiful and balanced with a long, fresh finish at the end.
Wine Spectator awarded this wine 90 points, describing it as “pineapple, mandarin orange, Bosc pear, pastry; rich and well sculpted.”#
