Reviews and Ratings

Lynn van der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Patio time!
Summer fresh aromas of raspberries and cranberries and carry through to a crisp mouth feel, and a light fizz with a low alcohol point making this a refreshing back patio wine.
Tasted April 2017.
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Tastes like Summer is just around the corner. Fresh strawberry and cranberry with a tangy mouthfeel. Pair with smoked salmon.
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Made with red grape varieties indigenous to the region. Subtle strawberry aroma, red currant, bramble, savoury and a bit earthy with refreshing acidity on the palate. Not too sweet, the declared residual sugar is 12 g/l.
Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A blend of Vinhão, Azal Tinto and Borraçal; this Rosé reminds me a bit of a young Beaujolais. Red berry aromas and a touch of bubblegum. Off dry (12 g/l sugar) with sweet cherry flavours. Light body with some effervescence. An easy drinking, low alcohol wine. Serve chilled with a watermelon and feta salad. Tasted April 25, 2017.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Crisp and ready to enjoy. This is a value priced rosé Vinho Verde, which is easy to drink. Tart and crisp Strawberry and nectarine on the nose and palate. Inviting for patio season and a great pairing with summer salads. Tasted this NV in April 2017. 87 points.
