Real Companhia Velha Espumante Rosé Brut
The Real Companhia Velha Espumante Brut Rosé is a result of a very careful selection of Pinot Noir from Quinta de Cidrô located in São João da Pesqueira. Cidrô’s terroir is characterized by its high altitude and mild climate, factors that allow a longer vegetative cycle, making it possible to harvest the Pinot Noir at the right point for a sparkling wine. This beautiful estate, although located on a high plateau, offers very poor and dry xist soils, resulting in lower yields that benefit this wine with an excellent texture, volume and acidity. In 2013, we produced a sparkling wine from 100% Pinot which showed a an attactive blush colour and the typical tasting characteristics of a Rosé.Download ficha técnica
Fermentation occured in a small stainless steel tank at controlled temperture, after grapes had been gently crushed in a pneumatic press at low pressure. The wine was kept in stainless steel and bottled in spring for its second fermentation. The wine aged 5 years in bottle until its degorgement.
Typical blush colour, showing expressive floral notes and delicate red berry aromas, that combine in perfect complexity. On the palate it shows good volume yet reveals an elegant structure and finesse, with flavours combined to its aromas, finishing long and vivid with an excellent acidty.
