This Rosé, relatively low in alcohol at 10.5%, is a blend of three grapes you may never heard of before: Vinhão, Azal and Borracal. Don't let that scare you though. It has a light, glistening red color with a fruity nose. On the palate, there are prominent flavors of lush strawberry and raspberry and it also has a light effervescence to it, which is refreshing and helps to cleanse your palate. The wine is primarily dry, with only the mildest hint of sweetness, and good acidity. Though it is a relatively simple wine, it is quite tasty and fun.
Food pairing:. Grilled food, charcuterie, seafood, chicken, Asian food.
