Humus Vinho Rose 'Palhete' Lisbon, PortugalRegular price $25.00
From the importer: This is a year-round rose released almost well over a year after it was harvested.
Palhete is a Portuguese term for using white and red grapes in the same wine.
This rose is made in an interesting fashion. The Touriga Nacional maceration its red skins for about three hours, then is racked to macerate on the destemmed skins of Arinto and Fernao Pires (both white grapes) for 30 days. It then ages in oak barrels for nine months.
