Never one to rest on her laurels, Sophia Bergqvist has invested significantly over the last few years at La Rosa with the construction of a new winery. New granite lagares, fermentation tanks and an automatic basket press have been purchased, a carefully thought out tasting room overlooking the Douro River has been constructed, an extensive area for entertaining has been created, as well as a number of apartments and guest rooms built to develop the tourism side of the business. You can’t help but be impressed with the scale of this project and admire Sophia Bergqvist’s vision for this family Quinta, whilst she has maintained the integrity of the old building and the charm of a family estate in the Douro.
It has more balance and texture than many previous La Rosa whites. With tropical banana silenced on the nose together with citrus tones, the wine shows great minerality and has a long, creamy, rich, velvety finish. The lively acidity keeps the wine fresh and keeps other La Rosa white wines in style.
