Atlantis Tinta Negra Vinho Rosé 2018

Madeira, PortugalThis stylish dry rosé comes from a very humble background. Tinta Negra is the red grape of Madeira that goes into youthful / less premium Madiera. This is made by the powerful Madeira Wine Company, the group that owns much of the island, including Blandy’s, Cossart Gordon, Leacocks, and Miles Madeira. Grapes from the southern island were macerated on skins for 24 hours before a cool ferment, and four months on skins. With this wine, the grape goes from workhorse to fashionista, pouring a pale / medium peach. Wild raspberry, youthful cherry, tangerine is spiced with scrubby herbs and broken stones, to a snappy finish. Smart, fresh, and dry, and at a welcome 11 degrees, this is a savvy rosé for summer.Tasted: 14 May 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 25.00 private wine shops Producer: MaetierraDistributors: The Wine Syndicate
