Quinta das Arcas Arca Nova Rosé, Vinho Verde

Quinta das Arcas Arca Nova Rosé, Vinho Verde

A bright, strawberry-pink rosé made from a blend of 60% Espadeiro and 40% Touriga Nacional; both of these grapes are dark-skinned varieties, the latter is also used in the production of Port. The grapes are mostly harvested by hand, from vineyards only a short distance away from the winery; so are ideally placed for a quick journey and rapid crushing. The skins are left with the juice at the start of the fermentation process so the colour is extracted to make the wine a rosé; no oak is used. The wine shows strawberry and raspberry aromas, complemented by a refreshing citrusy acidity, mainly lime, and a touch of spritz on the finish.
