About This Project

These grapes, which are commonly associated with wines of a unique character, come from the Alsácia region and are a combination of the mutation of the Pinot Noir grapes.
Due to the proximity of the ocean and the moderate temperatures, at Quinta do Rol you can encounter all of the qualities needed for a good development.

Slightly golden yellow color. Features soft toast , very attractive tropicality , papaya , good vegetable touch, freshly cut grass , green asparagus , with great minerality and some saline nuances . Freshness very alive, bulky, great touch sophistication , a single white wine made with a rare type of grape for our country . Ends with very good persistence.

Description

Quinta do Rol’s goal: superior quality wines, notwithstanding the registered low productivity in the vineyard and the uncertainty of its behaviour, we have opted for its production. A Portuguese Pinot Gris!
It presents a citrus yellow color and floral and fruity, mineral aroma with emphasis on the aromatic sensations of pear and apple derived from the Western region.
Pastas, fish and seafood accompany this wine wonderfully, as long as served chilled.
Rare, resonating and refined, it is appropriate for every season and all occasions: from intimate, serene and delicate to more formal and upstanding.
