A new release from the joint venture between Quinta de la Rosa and winemaker Jorge Moreira, this is a beautiful wood-aged wine, with delicious tropical fruits as well as a tense young structure. It has fine acidity that cuts through the rich fruitiness and the tangy texture. The wine needs to age, so drink from 2018.
