Concept


Volcanic Series are wines of volcanic origin, where the soils, poor and stony, defy the very definition of agricultural soil. On this almost "mother rock," in the middle of the Atlantic and at the base of Portugal's largest mountain, where nothing else could grow, the grapes in this Volcanic Rosé, ripened as much as the brave Azorean climate allowed.

Tasting Notes


With a light pink color, with touches of cherry, has a very intense nose of ripe strawberry, married with notes of iodine and black pepper. In the mouth it surprises, it is textured, saline, but fresh, with the salts persisting and stinging the palate. It is a Volcanic Rosé.

Production


20,000 bottles of 0.75L

Alcohol


11,5% Vol

Vinification


The grapes are carefully selected in a selection table and then gently crushed and transported to the fermentation tanks without the aid of pumps. Here they macerate for 3 to 6 hours at low temperature and the resulting sangria ferments spontaneously at 12ºC in order to maintain all the aromatic potential.

Gastronomy


Fresh, elegant and saline rosé like few others. Ideal partner of fish dishes, seafood and salads. It has volume and structure for white meat dishes. Perfect for Indian, Thai and sushi dishes.

Conservation and service


Keep at 6-8ºC to be served at 10ºC, and drink at 12ºC.
