Quevedo Port Wine Press Release for the day of June, 8th, 2009
Quevedo, Port and Douro wine producer, is releasing Quevedo Rose Port, a young and cosmopolitan Port with a refreshing and smooth taste.
After being the first Port Wine producer to communicate through a blog, Quevedo is now presenting a Port for young, modern and relaxed consumers willing to try new tastes and flavours.
Differentiating from the traditional Port Wine by its mildness and easiness of taste, Quevedo Rose is even better served chilled or on the rocks during the hot Summer days. However it can be drunk during all the year accompanied by good friends!
Quevedo Rosé is a Port Wine made from 40% Touriga Nacional, 30% Touriga Franca and 30% Sousão, from the young vines of the Quinta da Trovisca. The juice was cold fermented for 10 days with a limited contact with the skins. The result is a light and delicate but fresh Port.
Color: delicate raspberry color
Flavor: tropical notes combined with a mild flavor of raspberry and strawberry
On the palate is fresh with delicious ripe strawberry and raspberry fruit flavors, and nuances of tropical fruits
