Vera Vinho Verde Rose
Vera Rose is 100% estate fruit, estate bottled, low RS with very light carbonation, allowing for a medium body, more balanced wine. The fact that fruit comes from the estate’s 104 plots (yes 104!) provides consistent quality from vintage to vintage. Vera Rosé is one of the original, distinct Rosé offerings from the Vinho Verde region and from Portugal.
80% Vinhao, 20% Rabo-de-Anho. Vines planted in 1998. Tended in sandy loam, granite and schist soil at 320 m (1,050 ft) elevation.
De-stemming and gentle pressing. The juice settles for 48 hours at 10° Celsius before fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. (14°-16° C). Filtered prior to bottling which happens in February. This is a vegan wine.
