"A delightful Vinho Verde rosé with strawberry and cranberry fruit flavors and rose petal, too. It is very light-bodied and the palate is all about fresh, lively, zesty, refreshing acidity".
- Lorena Ascencios.
"Oh how I adore this rosé! The bright acidity, sandy minerality and racy body makes me giddy. As soon as we got this wine on the shelf its color intrigued me. The hue reminiscent of a syrupy Shirley Temple immediately struck my fancy. Seeing lots of rosés with shades more akin to a cotton candy light pink this bold pink was refreshing. The nose, beautiful! Bright berries, powerful notes of strawberry and watermelon. On the palate, flavorful big and juicy. Loads of beautiful wet gravely minerality and heaps of zippy acidity that makes the back of your mouth water. Finishing with a beautiful length that idles on your palate making you thirsty for more. Give this rosé a try. I promise you won't regret it".
- HG (Astor Wines, NY, USA)
"A rose pink colored wine that is dry and with ripe fruit. Its acidity contrasts with the warm red-berry fruit and the edge of tannin. There is a peppery, crisp aftertaste".
