    A lively mineral driven Rosé made with fruit grown in the pure volcanic, black basaltic of the Azores. Bright and juicy with wild strawberry, cherry, pink grapefruit on a salty, light bodied palate, finishing with more quenching grapefruit pith. Smashable, characterful and moreish. Rosé Vulcânico is made with saignée from António Maçanita's Tinto Vulcanico, along with partial whole bunch, and including some co-fermentation. Stainless steel preserves the crisp fruit, and no maceration created the pale peach hue. The 600-1000L stainless barrels were lain on their sides for maximum lees contact, giving the wine a lovely texture on the palate. Super interesting and supremely drinkable, a delightful all-seasons rosé.
