Rui Abecassis, founder of Obrigado, tells us, "The design for the label of Nortico Rosé comes from my family’s small atelier, where I learned to love tiles. The ceramic tile atelier was more a labor of passion and tenacity than a business, as it always seemed to be on the brink of bankruptcy. Each 14 X 14 cm tile is produced from scratch and painted by hand. We wanted the Nortico Rosé label to capture that spirit and Portuguese aesthetics." This Vinho Verde rosé is made with 40% alvarelhão, 40% pedral, and 20% vinhao, all native Portuguese varietals, on the south bank of the Minho River. The soils are granite and schist and the area is a bit warmer than the coastal regions, allowing for perfect maturation and balance in the fruit. This vibrant rosé is fermented in all stainless steel and is extraordinarily fresh and light, with bright red cherry, zesty lemon, and a touch of orange peel complemented by a saline minerality and mouthwatering acidity. Utterly refreshing and perfect for patio, porch, or poolside sipping - this might just become your new summer staple! Sustainably grown, vegan.
