Antonio Madeira Rosé
Antonio's wine are usually hard to come by so we are just ecstatic that we managed to get some cases of his new rose. The idea was to seek the expression of the terroir of Serra da Estrela, thus, nothing was added. After direct pressing, gravity decanting lasted 2 days, without use of enzymes or enological products. Alcoholic fermentation took place in a stainless steel tank and began naturally, with the yeast from the vine itself, to express its identity in the purest form. Alcoholic fermentation lasted 2 months.
This is an atypical rosé in that it is more of a gastronomic wine. Very dry, with aromas of granite wrapped in fresh red fruit. In the mouth it has remarkable structure, fresh, saline and tasty, granitic long and persistent finish.
