Rose wine – Alentejo Wines Region - Portalegre
This Howard’s Folly Sonhador Rosé 2019 is a Rosé Wine from the Alentejo Region, the first Rosé from this cellar under the responsibility of winemaker David Baverstock.
Sonhador Rosé 2019 is produced with grape varieties harvested from vineyards planted in Portalegre to the northeast of Alentejo in the granite foothills of the Serra de São Mamede, where it is cooler, with many old vines, which give the wines more complexity and freshness.
The grapes of the Aragonês (65%) and Castelão (35%) varieties that result in this 2019 Sonhador Rosé Wine were the result of a Harvest with the selection of grapes and transporting them manually in 15kg plastic boxes, with a yield of 4- 5 tons per hectare.
This was followed by vinification with a sorted bunch before destemming and crushing, after 48h of cold sedimentation, and a slight aging of four months of aging in light lees (Bâtonnage), being bottled in April 2020.
