Quinta da Raza Pet Nat Rosé
Producer: Quinta da Raza
Varietal: Padeiro, Vinhão
Region: Basto, Vinho Verde, Portugal
Quinta da Raza holds 50 hectares of vines in the unique Basto area of the Vinho Verde region in Portugal. Located between the Tâmega river and the Serra do Marão mountains, Quinta da Raza is constantly caught in a funnel of Atlantic wind, keeping the air dry and cool. Their resulting wines feature bracing acidity and poise as a result. A fifth-generation winery, theirs is a mission to preserve the classic Vinho Verde character of their wines.
Raza's Pet Nat is a naturally sparkling, unfiltered rosé featuring both the beloved Padeiro Grape and Vinhão, a grape with origins dating back to the Iberian Peninsula and traditionally used in Port wines. They take a minimal-intervention approach, letting nature dictate with wild yeasts and using minimal sulfites.
