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. Wines that are rich and full-bodied whilst being fresh and lively with a good acidity and minerality.
GRAPE VARIETIES: Traditional port varieties, mainly Touriga Nacional (30%), Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz, from the older dry stone terraced vineyards at La Rosa. Mainly from the Lamelas vineyard planted by Tim Bergqvist more than 20 years ago.
REGION: Douro, Portugal
TECHNICAL NOTES: Aging: Now – 5 years+ Alcohol 14.5% | RS .6 g/dm3 Total Acidity 5.4 G/dm3 Volatile Acidity .6 G/dmc Ph: 3.63 SO2: 140 Mg/dm3
AROMA: On the nose, wild herbal, shrub-like flavors of the Douro are evident. The ripeness of the La Rosa 2018 is almost perfect, giving good aromatic complexity but maintaining all the freshness and elegance that the excessive summer heat sometimes gives to Douro wines.
FLAVOR: Quite full bodied with lively tannins highlighting the flavors and giving the wine life. Long and versatile, it is a wine for almost all food and all occasions.
