This Vinho Verde Rosado is a blend of Portugal’s most noble grape Touriga Nacional, and two grapes native to the region – Padeiro and Espa. The sourcing of the grapes comes from the sub-regions of Lima and Cavado in the Vinho Verde region. The grapes are macerated for a short time and then fermented cool in stainless steel tanks to preserve the refreshing acidity and youthful fruitiness. The wine is lightly fined for a brilliant clarity and then bottled young for immediate enjoyment.

Tasting Notes

This rosado wine is bright pink in color and fairly bursting with aromas of fresh red berries like strawberry and raspberry along with more subtle notes of citrus. On the palate, the wine is youthful yet elegant, well-balanced and fresh with a long, lingering finish.

Food Pairing

The J. Portugal Ramos Vinho Verde Rosado is perfectly delicious on its own as an aperitif. But it’s also a versatile food wine that would pair well with a variety of dishes like olive tapenade, tuna sashimi, and grilled shrimp.
