Tapada das Lebres Premium Rosé, from Alentejo

Tapada das Lebres, Premium Rosé wine, produced by Herdade das Mouras de Arraiolos in the Alentejo wine region of Portugal.

It is located in the municipality of Arraiolos, a historical town in Alentejo, known country-wide for its traditions of hand-crafted embroidered carpets, dating back to the 16th century.

The winery is a living testimony of a new generation of wine producers and enrichment of the most genuine winemaking traditions. In their vineyard where nine red and four white grape varieties were planted, the first harvest was in 2005.

Arraiolos is also known as the land which abounds in wild hares (this is what the name of the wine refers: ‘Tapada das Lebres de Arraiolos’). In the words of the producer: “this wine evokes the intimate relationship between hunting and wine”.

This rosé wine is a beautiful blend of the Syrah, Aragonez, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Touriga Nacional grape that was growing on brown-Mediterranean soil.

The harvest was made mechanically in the vintage of 2019, and the fermentation in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature between 16ºC and 17ºC.

The wine presents a bright, deep salmon color in the glass.

Amazing aromas of fresh fruits on the nose, strawberry, blueberry and black currant with some dried fig, in a very well mixed with small nuances of peppercorn and wet slate.

On the palate, a perfectly well-balanced rosé wine, light, fresh and beautifully fruity. Nice tannins appear among the very marked fruity flavors, ending in an elegant and refreshing finish that carries also a persistent, but light acidity. A young, smooth wine that is rich in flavors and very delicious.

13% of alcohol content.

This fresh rosé wine is pairing well with light cheeses and white meats, meals with bacon, salami or mushroom, Asian spicy pork, lamb, tomato-based dishes, peppery sauces or steak.
