Winemaker's Notes

La Rosas classic house style achieved by slow maceration in traditional granite Lagares has produced a wine full of luscious forward fruit with a very attractive nose and a long velvety slightly drier finish across the palate. The La Rosa 1995 Vintage Port is more delicate and rounded than say the muscular 1992, and though likely to last as long, will come forward for drinking sooner.
