Yes, it is quite true about the Friars, Monks & Priests ... They have been enjoying their wines since time memorial ... In Navarra and La Rioja, some of the best wineries are located in Monasteries !

Thanks for the recommended ... The Kray Bros. have done it again ! ?

You actually still have an I.Q. after drinking wine? For two people, go cheap after the first bottle as it all tastes the same then.

In theory, I agree, but I find there is more acid unpleasantness with cheaper wines.

What about Brut or Extra Dry Cavas for example, do you like Rosé that is a Sparkling Wine ?

Which Portuguese Rosés do you enjoy ?

What about PROTOS ROSÉ ? It is from Valladolid, Castilla León - Spain


do you like LAMBRUSCO ROSÉ ? ( emilia romagna - italia )

Margi.
I have liked every Portuguese rosé that I have ever tasted.

The ones currently available at the SAQ are Mateus and Casal Mendes. They haven't carried Casal Mendes for about 20 years, but I remember drinking a lot of it then. I have some in my fridge now. I do like Mateus too.

Last night we had a French, crackling rosé, Royale de Neuville. That's an old standby for me too. Those bubbles do add a certain festiveness.

i do think portuguese wines are underated for some reason,IMO a good douro or touriga nacional(tesco used to do a belter but don't stock it now)is hard to beat.
glad you like mateus tax,it's certainly stood the test of time!
