The terroir in the Douro is still largely unexplored and by making wines with balance, harmony and equilibrium, they 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. The douROSA wines are blended to be easy, approachable wines for immediate drinking. 2017, with the high temperatures during the summer, resulted in wines a little more dense and concentrated than normal. Pretty violet colours, red fruit flavours, very fresh and elegant, on the palate seductive, joyous with much fruit and soft young tannins. FOOD: 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 (15-16ºC) accompanied with lighter style food or drunk at a higher temperature (18ºC) with heavier dishes. This wine is perfect with Italian cuisine, white meat such as chicken or pork and fish.
GRAPE VARIETIES: Traditional port varieties, mainly 52% Touriga Nacional with the remaining amounts other mixed varieties (Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinto Cão).
