Escudo Real Vinho Verde Rosé, Portugal, 2018
Overview of the Wine
Looking at the Quinta da Lixa is to understand the outcome of a passion that the Meireles family has always nurtured.
The Quinta da Lixa is a living testament to the passion that the Meireles family has always had for Vinho Verde.
This family has a number of business interests, and, while still it owned the vineyards around the small town of Vila da Lixa, it decided in 1986 to set up a small firm, and this became what is now known as the Quinta da Lixa - Sociedade Agrícola, Lda. At first the wines produced were sold in bulk, but it soon became clear that their quality and popularity was such that estate bottling was required. The increase in production made it necessary to build new facilities to replace the original winery since this was no longer able to ensure the standards of quality for which the Company was noted."
Grape / Blend
60% Touriga Nacional, 40% Espadeiro
Very refreshing rosé from Vinho Verde made from Touriga Nacional and Espadeiro. As you’d expect there’s some spritz which gives a zippy fizz on the tongue, adding even more to the overall refreshing mouthfeel. It’s light bodied – alcohol is just 10.5% – with aromas of roses, cranberries, and strawberries. Easy and fun, and perfect for the summer months.
