For this rosé Reserva we have selected the grape variety Tinto Cão, one of the most singular native varieties of the Douro, recognised by its small bunches and thick skin. Having aged in the cellars of Quinta de S. Luiz, this is an elegant rosé, wide and complex. There are only 2.541 bottles available.
The wine should be stored in a cool and dry place, sheltered from light and temperature fluctuations. The bottle should remain in a horizontal position. Best served at a temperature between 10 - 12ºC.

Grown in the Cima Corgo subregion, the Tinto Cão grapes in this wine were harvested by hand in the first week of August 2019 and carried in 20kg crates to the winery in Quinta S. Luiz, where they were again selected on the sorting table. After the soft pressing of the grapes still in their bunches, 80% of the must fermented in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature while the rest fermented in used wood barrels. Having matured in stainless steel vats for 6 months with a weekly battonage, the final blend now reveals its full potential.
With a salmon colour, this Reserva shows light floral notes combined with aromas of fresh fruit, notably red currant. On the palate, its texture, elegance and silkiness make a good impression, with notes of smoke enhancing its complexity. Finishes long and fresh and is a great wine to have on its own or at the beginning of a meal.
To fully enjoy this wine, Kopke suggests it as an aperitif or pairing it with seafood, oily fish, white meat or medium-intensity cheese.
