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 LBV Port 2016
This LBV has a good, clean defined style similar to other La Rosa ports with a good structure, integrated, mature tannins and soft wood undertones. This port shows the harmony and equilibrium present in the La Rosa vineyards. La Rosa ports are always slightly drier than most, and the brandy is always well integrated. Great Compelxity and length. Sweet, alcoholic and full bodied!
