Dalva Rosé was the last type of Port released by Dalva in the year of 2008, produduced with the same type of grapes of a Ruby Port but with a more limited exposure to the grape peel, only long enough to make the wine pink. It’s a very fruity Port that must be served cold or with a slice of orange. A wine with strong flavours of raspberry, strawberry, notes of cherry, honey and grapefruit. A good balance of sweetness.
On the palate is a soft and attractive Port with a long and fresh aftertaste. The bottle must be stored in a cool, dry and dark space in order to maintain the quality of the Port. It is a wine that does not evolve much in bottle, so it is advisable to drink it immediately. You should serve it fresh by itself or by adding a slice of orange and a leaf of mint, and is also very good to use as the basis of several cocktail recipes.
