Quinta da Fonte Souto Rose
The grapes are harvested into small boxes and received in the property’s cellar. Manual sorting is followed by destemming and gentle crushing, after which the grapes are transferred to a pneumatic press where they are pressed at low pressure in order to limit the extraction of color and phenolic compounds. Fermentation then takes place in stainless steel vats at low temperatures in order to preserve all the wine’s aromatic expression. After alcoholic fermentation, the wines are sulphited to prevent malolactic fermentation from starting. Soft and attractive copper color. Expressive aromas of raspberry and strawberry ice cream with subtle hints of watermelon. Mineral freshness that offers an invigorating appeal. Well defined mouth with a crunchy citric acidity, which precedes delicate currant and red berry flavors. The dry finish sustains the elegance and balance of this wine.
