On this reference, we have managed to produce, through viticulture, an elegant, pleasant, and fresh fruit base while, through enology, achieving a round, structured, and gastronomic profile. It presents itself as an alternative to the typical character of this variety.
On the Dez Tostões Rosé, with a Syrah base, the word of order is balance. The objective is to achieve a pale, fresh, elegant, and joyful profile while, through alcohol content and work developed in the winery, completing a structured, persistent, and gastronomic profile allowing it to accompany the most complex of dishes.
Keeping our primary focus on overall quality, our grapes are manually picked during the night into small 20kg boxes, and later carefully transported, during the coldest hours, to our winery. There, our enology team takes charge of transforming these grapes into the wines, which embody all the different references presented.
