Quinta do Romeu Rosé, Douro '19

As someone that travels to Portugal frequently, you simply don’t find a lot of rosé options in restaurants or retail. What is ironic about that is that over the history of Portuguese wines, one of the most exported wines was historically a rosé. Presently, we see a new small selection of dry Portuguese rosé to now choose from. Much of the Douro Valley is too warm of a climate to produce refreshing dry rosé. But when it comes to Quinta do Romeu's location, while technically in the Douro Valley, is located in the northern most part of the Douro. In fact the Menéres family considers this area the “warm lands of Trás-os-Montes,” as the winery practically sits on the border between the Douro and this neighboring region. With a much cooler micro-climate the area experiences, compared to that of the heart of the Douro, Romeu has the opportunity to showcase an absolutely delightful, dry rosé. Environmental factors such as the two rivers that flow near Jerusalém do Romeu have cut up the valley into different expositions, with very diverse soils and micro-climates, that have aided in allowing Romeu to produce a selection such as this, and many other wines with similar qualities of lower alcohol, bright acidity and fresh fruit character. The Romeu Rosé is a blend of traditional Douro grapes: Tinta Roriz, Tinta Cão, and Touriga Nacional. The grapes are destemmed, with the Touriga sitting on its skins for 6 hours before pressing. The grapes are then co-fermented in stainless steel tanks, where they remain till bottling. This beautiful rosé explodes from the glass with notes of wild strawberry, flowers, and spice. Medium-weight on the palate, but with great freshness and vibrancy. It never feels too "fruity" but also is incredibly thirst quenching.
