Pata d’Urso Rosé 2019, from Douro

And today, let me show you another Pata d’Urso wine of Quinta da Furada, located in Ervedosa de Douro, the heart of the Douro Valley of Portugal.

The Quinta belongs to the same family for at least seven generations, they have old vineyards, some of them from the pre-phylloxera times.

Their Pata d’Urso wines (which name means Bear Paw in English) were named after a kind story that you can read in my previous posts.

In 2019, in a year full of goals, one of them was the elaboration of a rosé wine that was genuine.

Thus was born Pata D’Urso Rosé 2019 which is the result of a rigorous selection of the oldest varieties of the Douro present in the old vineyards of Quinta da Furada.

After the manual harvest, the grapes were crushed and de-stemmed. The pre-fermentation maceration was carried out at low temperatures for 24 hours. Afterward, the must was removed to make this rosé. The fermentation process was carried out in the used, 600-liter French oak barrels for 6 months.

Pata D’Urso Rosé 2019 presents a beautiful, very deep pink color in the glass.

On the nose, aromas of red fruits with floral touches, strawberry, raspberry, rose petals, with a hint of the subtlety of vanilla.

On the palate, surprisingly elegant and smooth, dry wine, with light tannins, ending in a long and fresh finish, filled with pleasant acidity.

The alcohol content is 13%.

Consume this wine at a temperature of 10-12 C.

Goes well with salty cheeses, white and cured meats, vegetables and meals prepared with aromatic green herbs.
