2023 Adega Ponte da Barca "Las Lilas" Vinho Verde Rosé, Minho, Portugal

Slightly spritzy, light-bodied rose with tart cranberry, bright cherry and raspberry accents. Drink it cold when it's hot out, and drink a lot of it. Great value for a crisp, light rose. 



Fermentation in stainless steel tanks. No chaptalization and acidification at all. The idea is to stay natural as much as possible.


The Las Lilas vineyards are nestled between the Lima and Vez rivers, in the Vinho Verde wine region of Portugal. Almost half of the 34 acres of vineyards are planted with old vines (> 25 years old). Las Lilas’ winemaker, José Oliveira has been working in the region for almost 20 years. Literally meaning “green wine,” the Vinho Verde name actually refers to it being a wine that is usually drunk “young.” A cooler climate and granitic soil lead to fresh, light wines with good acidity. Their low alcohol content and slight effervescence make them excellent as an aperitif, or for an afternoon spent in the backyard.
