Never one to rest on her laurels, Sophia Bergqvist has invested significantly over the last few years at La Rosa with the construction of a new winery. New granite lagares, fermentation tanks and an automatic basket press have been purchased, a carefully thought out tasting room overlooking the Douro River has been constructed, an extensive area for entertaining has been created, as well as a number of apartments and guest rooms built to develop the tourism side of the business. You can’t help but be impressed with the scale of this project and admire Sophia Bergqvist’s vision for this family Quinta, whilst she has maintained the integrity of the old building and the charm of a family estate in the Douro.
Quinta de La Rosa La Rosa Reserve Branco 2018
Douro white grape varieties traditionally used for making white port. This douROSA white wine is mainly blended from Codega do Larinho (45%), Rabigato (27%), Viosinho (27%) varieties. The grapes come from nearby vineyards with a higher altitude, above the Douro Valley, than Quinta de la Rosa. The vineyards are especially identified by wine maker, Jorge Moreira, for their quality and good acidities.
Expressive white fruit aromas with noticeably minerality. On the palate, plenty of richness and citric fruit flavours, with a lively and very pleasant finish.
