2022 Herdade do Sobroso Sobro Rosé
Herdade do Sobroso is located in Vidigueira in the Alentejo region. This is one of the oldest wine regions in Portugal. In the beautiful Alentejo, Herdade do Sobroso has a perfect location with its vineyards located on the banks of the river Guadiana and the tributary river Rio dos Patos or the river of the ducks. The trademark is therefore the ducks on the labels. It is the perfect setting for the ripening of the grapes and few vineyards have this luxury and this explains why this winery can make very nice wines because there is never a water debt. In addition to the fact that there is sufficient water, this region is the only one in the Alentejo that has the influence of the ocean that ensures healthy ripening.
The Herdade do Sobroso Sobro Rosé is made from the typical Portuguese grape, the Aragonez. The grapes are picked by hand. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats with a controlled temperature for no less than 25 days, after which it is allowed to continue raising on its own lees (sur lie), which does not make this an average rosé, but gives this raising a bit of extra complexity. This beautiful rosé has a clear, fresh very light pink color in the glass. In the nose the wine is fresh with notes of cherries and strawberries. in the mouth a nice balance between the fruit and the acid and this is the trademark of Herdade do Sobroso because in all their wines this balance is very good. The 12.5% alcohol makes the Sobro rosé also very pleasant as a terrace wine or at the BBQ and fortunately not such an excessively heavy alcohol-rich rosé. A delicious glass for just like that, on the terrace and excellent with seafood, spicy dishes and sushi.
