Bussaco Palace, Bucaco Rosado 2016
A very tiny production and exclusive wine, produced for the first time in 30 years!
It is a dry, textured and creamy Rosado with amazing structure thanks to six months of lees ageing. A gastronomic Provence rose style, fuller bodied with a lovely salinity. Powerful, fresh and lingering, it is a real gem.
100% Baga, aged on the lees for six months in second use French 300 litre barrels.
The Palace Hotel Bussaco began life in 1917, nestled between Bairrada and Dao, an hour south of Oporto right in the middle of what was then a bustling holiday retreat for Portugal's wealthy elite. Its gothic grandeur, maintained all but unchanged by the de Almeida family over the past near century serves as a visual clue to the highly traditional, classical and timeless wines the hotel winery produces. Stylistically, the two great Portuguese grapes of the red, Baga and Touriga Nacional produce a wine of great depth of flavour but also bright and uplifting acidity. Moreover, they are wines that continue to evolve in the glass offering layer upon layer of complexity. Lovers of Nebbiolo, Northern Rhone Syrah, and of course Baga, will undoubtedly find these fascinating and individual wines highly appealing. The Palace Hotel owns no vineyards, it buys its grapes from the Bairrada and Dao region. The quality of the wine comes from the careful grape selection and the meticulous traditional methods used in production. Bussaco wines taste great when they are young and taste even better when they lived for some decades. Both whites and reds are famous for their longevity.
