Quinta de la Rosa LBV port is made from traditional port varieties, mainly Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Sousão, and Tinta Roriz.
An extremely high-quality port made from some of the best wines from 2016. The port was foot trodden in granite lagares before aging in large oak ‘tonels’ for 4 years. Lightly filtered and bottled in May 2020. Ready for immediate drinking without the need for decanting.
Still largely unexplored, the terroir in the Douro offers incredible opportunity. None more so than La Rosa’s, whose vines rise dramatically out of the river with the imposing Vale do Inferno vineyard, and climb majestically up to an altitude of 500m with Lamelas, whose magnificent views overlook the very heart of the region. The estate’s grapes are category A – the very best the Douro has to offer.
Remarkable freshness and minerality provided by the Quinta’s unique terroir, along with a steadfast desire to ensure that the brandy is well integrated means that all of our Ports are made in drier ‘house style’ without any overpowering sweetness. Extremely complex aromas with notes of cherry liqueur, cacao and coffee. Very rich and full-bodied, it has a captivating fruit driven sweetness. Delicious tannins give this elegant LBV a long and vibrant finish.
