Pale pink in color, Catarina Rosé 2021 is marked by perfumes of violets and fruits of the forest; in the mouth these aromatic sensations are highlighted and intense, which together with a good acidity, originate a wine with an elegant, full, very mineral and fresh.
For this rosé two varieties were selected, the emblematic Castelão (75%), one of the most important in Peninsula de Setúbal, and the iconic Cabernet Sauvigon (25%), a variety of the famous Bordeaux wines, the best known and most popular in the world, which gives also origin to the famous Quinta da Bacalhôa. After careful sampling of the grapes in the vineyards, the dates of vintage are marked. The Castelão planted in the Pinheiro Ramudo vineyard, was harvested on 15 September 2021 and Cabernet Sauvignon from Catarina’s vineyard entered the cellar on 09/24/2021. The grape enters the cellar, is cooled and gently pressed, after being clarified, it ferments at low temperatures (10 - 12ºC) thus achieving a very slow fermentation aiming at preservation of the primary aromas of the grape varieties. The final lot was then made in December 2021 on the 14th. The Castelão variety contributes to aromas of red fruits such as strawberry and blackberry. Cabernet contributes with aromas of violets and forest fruits.
