Quevedo Launches a Rosé Port

Rosé Port

We have been preparing this moment for a while. All started in mid September 2008 during the harvest. Claudia and me were discussing about the best moment to start harvesting. At the same time we both wanted to try our winemaking capabilities by making our own version of a Rosé Port. This is a easy-drinking and refreshing Port, with which we were identified.

We knew that our vineyard Quinta da Trovisca would give us the best grapes for our purpose: young vines at an altitude of over 1800 feet; possibility to achieve over ripeness maintaining a good acidity. But the most important reason to choose Quinta da Trovisca’s grapes was the varietals we decided to use for our Rosé Port: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Sousão. If the first two varietals are consensual due to their flowers and fruity flavors, sousão is more mineral and well known by its coloring “skills”. At the end, in the final blending, We decided to use 30% of sousão, which could give us a plus of acidity, 40% touriga nacional and 30% touriga franca.

Our job is now finished, Quevedo Rosé is ready to be enjoyed with your best friends!
