Espadeiro Rosé Casa da Bouça 2020 is made from 1988 vines from the Sousa sub-region at Casa da Bouça.
"It contains less than half a gram of residual sugar, eight grams of total acidity and 12.4% alcohol."
"This article presents the beginnings in our pages of Margarida Borges' adventure in Vinho Verde. The property is Casa da Bouça, on the right bank of the Sousa River, in the region of Lousada. There are 10 hectares of vineyards with different plots and different ages. They are all very small production wines and very dry, without sparkle. It's fun to see new wines and new companies. They have a tendency towards pure power as a style. Some may even border on stridency. We'll see if they can acquire some balance with a year or two in the cellar. It is possible. There is a lot of potential here. As fun as the Vinhos Verdes are, the star is obviously the Fojo. This iconic red is brilliant."
