Grape variety


Tinta Negra (aka Molar, Saborinho).

Wine History


This Rosé is produced from the grape variety Tinta Negra. The Tinta Negra grape variety is part of the ancient vineyards of the Madeira islands, and is still the basis for the wines that made the island famous. Outside the Madeira Islands it is a rare grape variety that can only be found in regions where the sea is close by, earning another name such as Molar in the Colares region or Saborinho in the Azores region. However, it should not be confused with Negra Mole from the Algarve, being a distinct grape variety. Its role in the past seems to have been to "color" white wines and give them a certain golden appearance appreciated at the time. Here, we test the potential of this variety in Rosé.
