Maçanita Touriga Nacional em Rosé 2021

Douro Valley, Northern Portugal, PortugalSiblings Antonio and Joana Maçinata work together on this Douro Valley project. This Touriga Nacional rosé comes from the Cima Corgo, around 200m altitude. Gently crushed grapes were macerated for 3 to 6 hours, before ferment and a short rest in stainless. Pouring a pale pink, this is tight and salty, with wild cherry, wild raspberry, scrubby herbs on a stony palate, tightened with pink grapefruit acidity. There's a lovely ease and grace to this savoury-edged rosé, making it a real charmer.Tasted: 27 August 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
