Mateus

, Portugal

For ‘The Original’ brand of rosé that turns 77 this year, Mateus is sprightly, vigorous and in rude health. Sales continue to grow, and when you taste it, you'll see why: it is fresh, crisp, clean and nicely balanced.

The winemaking is looked after by Miguel Pessanha, who has a Masters in Oenology from the University of Bordeaux. The Mateus style is based primarily on the Baga grape, which is the principal variety in the Bairrada region, where the winery is situated. This region also provides the Rufete and Touriga Franca grape varieties, that add freshness and complexity to the Mateus blend due to their moderate alcoholic strength and balanced acidity. The wine wears its 15 grams of residual sugar well, as the balance with the acidity is cleverly done to give a wine that, if tasted blind, would surprise many.

Mateus Rosé Original has an attractive raspberry pink hue. It has a refreshing acidity with an intense bouquet of red berries and delicate floral notes. On the palate, it is light and well balanced, with a soft effervescence and a hint of sweetness.
