La Rosa 2019 is a rich white wine from Douro wine region in Portugal. Produced by Quinta da La Rosa.
The history of Quinta de la Rosa started in 1815. The winery is a pioneer in the Douro region, famous for its top-of-the-range wines and ports. And in 1988 starts to enter the market with the production of the first Port Wine of the house.
Quinta de la Rosa has about 62 hectares of vineyards, which line the north bank of the river Douro and produce enriched wines with remarkable levels of acidity, minerality and freshness. It is one of the few estates in the Douro to have vineyards at a range of altitudes, up to 450 meters above sea level. This allows them to produce this refreshing dry white wine, as well as classic Ports.
