Brand João Portugal Ramos
Alcohol/vol 11.5%
This elegant rose is a pale pink color bursting with aromas of ripe strawberry and watermelon along with more subtle notes of orange peel, pink grapefruit and quince. On the palate, the wine is youthful and vibrant with bright acidity and lingering finish. The Joao Portugal Ramos Vinho Verde rose is perfectly delicious on its own as an aperitif. It's also a versatile food wine that pairs well with a variety of dishes like garlic shrimp, chicken piccata, olive tapenade crostini, oysters on the half shell and grilled octopus.

The 2019 Rosé Vinho Verde is a 59/41 blend of Espadeiro and Padeiro. It comes in with five grams of residual sugar, 7.5 grams of total acidity and 11.5% alcohol. There is no added carbonation. Fruity but still fresh, this adds good acidity to the waves of red fruit flavor. It's never candied or sweet. In its youth, this is a lively pink that is just perfect for warm weather. Call it a classic summer porch-sipping wine. It's worth leaning up on this again, but drink it young and fresh, no matter how long it theoretically holds (and under screwcap, it may hold decently for a few years).
