Winemaking: The hand-picked grapes went through a tight selection process in the vineyard and winery. Grapes are hand-picked and cooled to avoid oxidation and colour extraction. The selected grapes are crushed and cold pressed. Fermnetation takes place in both stainless steel and aged oak barrels . The wine ages in fine lees for 6 mths.
Pale salmon colour. The nose complexity is given by the Atlantic rich flavours, light red fruit and elegancy of the oak. It has a refined and velvety texture, Ocean flavours and crispy acidity. It finishes long and intense.
Located in the historic region of Colares, on the slopes of Serra de Sintra, the vineyards of Casal de Sta Maria are arranged in a wonderful landscape over the sea, at the westernmost point of continental Europe. They were planted in 2006 by Baron Bodo von Bruemmer, then 96 years old, with the aim of producing high quality wines that express the unique terroir of this farm. That was his passion, respecting the environment and dignifying the region.
Fernando Melo “Meteoric entrance to the top of Portuguese rosés. It was a successful performance, the result of the effort of the producer and the winemaker to produce world-class wines. Salty touches in the mouth, well-crafted freshness and a remarkable aromatic complexity” Score: 18,5/20.
“The 2018 Mar de Rosas is an upper-level rosé with a pale salmon color. Showing fine depth, complex aromatics and a medley of dried flavours alternating between red fruits and beef, this is beautifully done. It is wonderfully fresh.” 90/100 pts
