Review date: June 12, 2017

Wine Review: This white gold colored blend from Portugal opens with a peach pit and yellow grapefruit like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, pleasantly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty mild yellow grapefruit with notes of pineapple and Anjou pear with a hint of cantaloupe in the background. The finish is dry and its flavors are nicely prolonged. This wine is a very good quaffer and will be popular at your summer parties. Pair it with bacon wrapped scallops. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The La Rosa white has a very perfumed nose with citric and floral aromas. On the palate, the wine is quite full bodied, very soft and seductive. It is an intense wine, full of flavor without any excesses, very beautiful and balanced with a long, fresh finish at the end.

Organic status: not organic

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
