Mateus Dry Rose 750ml
Discover Rosé & Blush Wines
A rosé (from the French, rosé [oze]) is a wine that contains some color from the grape skins but not enough to be classified as a red wine. It's possible that it's the oldest known sort of wine, as it's the easiest to manufacture using the skin contact method. Depending on the grape varietals used and winemaking procedures, the pink color can range from a faint "onionskin" orange to a vibrant near-purple. In French, Portuguese, and English-speaking nations, the wine is usually labeled rosé, rosado in Spanish, or rosato in Italian.
Skin contact, saignée, and blending are the three main methods for making rosé wine. Rosé wines come in a variety of sweetness levels, from severely dry Provençal rosé to sweet White Zinfandels and blushes, and can be made still, semi-sparkling, or sparkling. Rosé wines are manufactured from a range of varietals and are available all over the world.
About the Producer: Mateus
Mateus is a Portuguese wine brand associated with light sparkling wines and slightly sweet rosé wines. It is owned by Sogrape, the largest wine producer in the country. The history of Mateus Rosé dates back to 1942, when Fernando Van Zeller Gedes founded Sogrape and created a light and fresh sparkling wine in a bottle inspired by the bottles of soldiers around the world. The first war chosen because it is different from the most typical designs. Production grew throughout the 1950s and 1960s, and in the 1980s worldwide sales of rosé and white wine were 3.25 million cases a year, representing 40% of Portuguese table wine exports. The portfolio has expanded to include fully sparkling rosé and whites, the Expressions line of three rosé and white wines and a richer tempranillo rosé in Spain.
