Country: Portugal Region: Alto Duoro
Category: Sparking Color: Rosé
A fabulous Rose Pet-Nat, from the rough, tough and challenging region of Alto Douro in Portugal. Winemaker Tiago Sampaio spent some time in Oregon, working in vineyards and studying oenology. Here, he developed a love for Pinot Noir, and upon his return to Portugal, he planted some Pinot Noir in his high altitude vineyards. This is a Pet Nat (Petillant Naturel aka Methode Ancestrale) from Tiago's Pinot Noir vines. It's a beautiful pale pink color in the glass, not overly aromatic, and delicate on the palate.
