O Produtor, tasting note published in May 15th 2020
We produced our first Rosé in 2007 and this wine has already gained a loyal community of 'aficionados' in Portugal and abroad. This time the colour is much rosier than in previous years. Fine, vegetal and dry aroma. In the mouth it is light and dry - a wine that leaves the nostalgia and the mark of its taste beyond the summer.
Manual harvesting in 20 kg boxes. De- sengace and crushing, followed by cooling of the masses and soft pressing. After decanting the must, the alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless steel vats with controlled temperature (18 oC) during 15 days. After fermentation, it was matured on fine lees for 3 months, and “bâton- nage” was carried out during the first month.
Quinta das Marias
During the last three decades, with much love and great care, we have turned Quinta das Marias into a wine house that produces top quality wines exclusively from its own culture. Our wines are an example of the elegance, depth and refinement that only the Dão region can produce, thanks to the climatic conditions and the exceptional soils from which it benefits. The first good wines were produced in 1998. The 1999 Dão has already won a gold medal in the Dão DOC Competition. The greatest success so far has been the awarding of the Best Single Vineyard Wine of the Year prize to the Touriga-Nacional Reserve 2011 in the Vinhos de Portugal Competition, the most important in the country. As a family company we place quality above everything else. And it is exactly because of this that we have managed to affirm our wines on the international markets in front of the greatest wine lovers.
