Quinta do Quetzal is set in the heart of the Alentejo region on the rich slopes of Vidigueira, close to the oldest known Roman winery in Portugal and Spain. The grapes grow on soil rich in Schist, the local mineral stone. While the area around Quinta do Quetzal is generally sunny and warm, its positioning on the foothills of the Serra do Mendro allows cooler air in from the Atlantic ocean. These conditions lead to big variations in temperature, giving the grapes the heat to ripen and the cooling breezes to recover.
This is a fruity and fresh rosé with juicy flavors of ripe strawberries and raspberries. The palate is dry and clean with bright acidity and a crisp finish.
Pair it with:
This wine is great as an aperitif or to enjoy on a warm day, but it's also fantastic with charcuterie, salads, light pastas, fresh fruits or cold appetizers like potato or pasta salads.
