Two winemakers in two regions that the world recognizes as being of high quality, the Douro and Alentejo, are united in a project, started in 2007. This is the Duorum (what means ‘from two’).
Their vineyards are located in the regions of Cima Corgo and Upper Douro, two exceptional and protected terroirs, on slopes at different altitudes, with carefully selected varieties of indigenous grapes.
This rosé is a blend of typical Douro varieties, the Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz grapes.
After a manual harvest in 2020, the grapes are destemmed and crushed, then are subjected to cold maceration for between 12-24 hours. The grapes are pressed, followed by alcoholic fermentation at a controlled temperature, between 14-16 ºC, in stainless steel vat.
The rosé has a beautiful salmon color.
Aroma marked by red fruits, with intense strawberry notes.
On the palate, a dry, complex taste. Red fruit flavors, cherry, strawberry and red currant combined with lovely minerals. A wine with well-balanced acidity and light tannins. Ending in a very round, medium-long finish.
Pleasant rosé wine with low (12%) alcohol volume.
To really enjoy this rosé, it should be served at a temperature of 10-12 °C.
Ideal to serve as an aperitif, but matches well with cold dishes, soups, salads, grilled fish dishes and light meats.
