Quinta da Costa do Pinhão - The Somm 2019
Producer: Quinta da Costa do Pinhão
Wine name: The Somm
ABV: 13.2
Total SO2: 50

First vintage of a rosé at this small Douro estate, run by Miguel Morais, with winemaking assistance from Luis Seabra. (Awaiting label)

It’s quite intensely coloured and flavoured – translucent purple/pink, no shrinking salmon-pink here.

Concentrated and focused fruit profile, with charming strawberry and raspberry fruit, a slightly briney aroma and subtle structure. The freshness and acidity is just great.

A rosé on steroids – that almost wants to be a light red.

Unfiltered, unfined, low sulphites. (< 50mg/L total)
