Viosinho, Rabigato, Gouveio, Códega do Larinho
It has more equilibrium and texture than many previous La Rosa whites. With muted tropical banana on the nose together with citric undertones, the wine shows great minerality and has a long, creamy, rich, velvety finish. The lively acidity keeps the wine fresh and in keeping in style to other La Rosa white wines.
Store and Serve Advices:
It can age well, ‘like a white burgundy’ as Jancis Robinson implied FT August 2012.
An ideal wine to accompany summer meals such as fish, salads and pasta or to drink it alone as an aperitif.
