Vinho Verde D.O.C. Rosé 2017

Vinho Verde D.O.C. Rosé 2017
- +

In Portuguese, Cinco Quinta means “Five Estates,” which is appropriate for this winery as grapes for their wines are sourced from five family-owned vineyard properties all located near the city of Vizela. In 1990, José Borges built the Cinco Quintas winery and produced a small quantity of his wines. The freshness comes from the characteristics of the grapes, the granite soils, but also from the mild temperatures due to the moderate influence of the Atlantic Ocean. In 2014 Cinco Quintas launched the “Avicella” line of Vinho Verde wines, balancing the winemaking traditions of their ancestors with modern winemaking technology and methods. The Vinho Verde D.O.C. Rosé is made from three Portuguese grape varietals:  Padeiro, Espadiero, and Vinhão.  The grapes come from estate vineyards in the town of Vizela in the Vinho Verde wine region.

Visually, this rosé has a darker color than many wines of its type, a result of the varietals used to make up this wine. In terms of aroma and flavor, the wine is also more intense than many rosé wines.  On the nose, this wine has an intense red fruit aroma. On the palate, the wine is crisp, refreshing, dry, its fruit flavors balanced nicely by bracing acidity.
