Description

Quinta de la Rosa White Port

Quinta de la Rosa White Port is a first class aperitif wine, a beautiful amber/honey colour, it shows excellent fruit on the palate, but at the same time has a long relatively dry finish.

The first pressings of the white grapes are taken off to be made into white wine. When the pH starts to rise, the last approximately 10% of the juice is drawn off into stainless steel vats, to be made into white port. When the fermenting juice reaches 1º Beaume, brandy is added to stop the fermentation.

The White Port is then stored in small wooden casks and matured in our own lodge at La Rosa. The White Port is blended from stocks held at La Rosa and has an average age of 2-3 years.
Unlike most port shippers, all products are stored and bottled in the Douro (at La Rosa and not Porto), allowing full traceability and ensuring quality from grape to bottle.

Serving Suggestions

This Port should be served slightly chilled and is also a good compliment to rich pates and fois gras. Good to drink cold as an aperitif or with a mixer. White Port and tonic is a particular favourite on the terrace at La Rosa in the summer whilst nibbling on some home produced roasted almonds. Make it like a gin and tonic together with ice and a slice of lemon.  For immediate consumption.

Producer

Quinta de la Rosa has been in the Bergqvist family since 1906, although they have been in the port trade as shippers under the family name, Feueheerd, since 1815.  It currently has around 55 hectares under vine and produces around 80,000 litres of port and 300,000 litres of table wine each year.

Quinta de la Rosa was given as a christening present for Claire Feueheerd, Sophia’s grandmother, in 1906.  Claire’s father, Albert, ran the family port shipping company, Feueheerds.  Albert was a real pioneer and was one of the first shippers to make ‘Single Quinta’ port from La Rosa’s grapes.

He was repsonsible for building Vale do Inferno’s vineyards with some of the highest, most impressive walls in the Douro.  He also built an adega with 8 lagares and started buying grapes in from local producers and making port at La Rosa.  This enabled Albert to retain the quality in production.  At this time, most port was made by small farmers in their own lagares.

Starting in the early 1990s, the Bergqvist family were one of the pioneers in taking red wine production in the Douro region seriously.  Quinta de la Rosa’s wines, both red and white, have won many accolades in the press and are sold in many prestigious restaurants and wine stores around the world.

Since 2002, Jorge Moreira, one of the finest wine makers in Portugal, has been making wines at La Rosa.  La Rosa celebrated its 30th anniversary since it restarted in 2018 with the launch of its 30 year Tawny.  Unfortunately Tim, the founder, died in the same year but was able to have seen and appreciated La Rosa’s recent successes.

Fonseca Terra Prima

Silky-smooth aromas of crushed red berry fruits and chocolate with little herbal nuances. On the palate that herbal quality is still there but some pure, velvety, cherry and plum fruit fills in nicely, the subtle sweetness developing but staying balanced by a certain acidity and a fairly nimble, lighter-bodied character. A spicy finish too in a style that is not heavy and very sippable. 89/100 Tom Cannavan, www.wine-pages.com

Mas Amiel Maury Vintage Rouge 2019

Mas Amiel Maury Vintage Rouge is made in the same style as the rimage wines of Banyuls. From 100% Grenache Noir grown on the southfacing broken schists and marne soils and yields of 25 hl/ha, the grapes are subsequently sorted, destemmed and vinified in the normal way. The alcohol is added while the wine is still in the vat (mutage sur les grains), which slows down the final fermentation, allowing a longer period of maceration and thereby conferring greater richness. This Maury is ruby with violet tints and the nose eloquently expresses framboise, cherry and crème-de-cassis. It is smooth in the mouth, the red fruits reinforced by bitter chocolate and spice as well as fine tannins. 0.75l bottle. This fleshy, yet refreshing, fruity wine is a perfect match for red fruit or chocolate desserts. It is a seductive, pure Grenache varietal that also pairs well with sweet and sour dishes.
