Adega de Penalva is one of Dão’s leading co-operative wineries. Founded in 1960 by 43 growers, today the co-operative has 1000 members. On average, each of these growers owns a little more than one hectare of vines.
Forget the Mateus, this is the kind of Portuguese rosé we want. It’s dry, crisp and very refreshing. Pale pink in colour, it has aromas of light red cherry, ripe strawberry, grapefruit, cumin, and clove. On the palate it is light bodied with zesty acidity and savoury red fruit flavours. It’s a lovely and unshowy rosé with a persistent finish that brings you back for another sip.
