2018 Maçanita Touriga Nacional Rosé
Douro Valley, Portugal
Macanita’s Touriga Nacional em Rose is an exuberant, juicy glass of summertime, crafted from the “king of Portuguese grapes,” Touriga Nacional. Most often used to craft ripe, rich reds, in rosé form, Touriga showcases its floral and mineral side in exceedingly refreshing fashion. Minimal maceration and careful, slow cold fermentation yield a wine that is classic Touriga, yet completely new.
Saturated rose-pink. On the nose, fresh crushed strawberries, bing cherries and cherry blossom aromas leap from the glass. On the palate, juicy and fresh, with beautiful texture and balance. Sour and Bing cherry, fresh and macerated strawberries, and a touch of white pepper spice all in abundance.
Macanita Touriga Nacional em Rose is a wine made for warm weather celebrations! Delicious as an aperitif, this wine is also a great pair with raw seafood preparations and fresh vegetables.
