Mateus Rosé

MATE002
Arguably the most famous label and bottle shape in the World, and recepient of many, many lampshades. Still made by the company Sogrape at their facility outside Lisbon, this has the same pretty strawberry and cherry Vimto fruit it had all those years ago, with a distinct frizzante character and light finish.

Sogrape

The Sogrape Vinhos S.A. is a Portuguese winery founded in 1942 by Fernando van Zeller Guedes as “Sociedade Comercial dos Grandes Vinhos de Mesa de Portugal”. It is the largest family-owned wine company in Portugal. Its first product was the rosé wine Mateus. It continued to produce quality wines with the style of a small family winery while modernizing and expanding through acquisitions to diversify into other areas of the Portuguese wine industry. By the end of the 1980s Sogrape became the largest wine producer in Portugal.

Tasting Notes

Pale salmon, lightly sparkling and forward on nose and palate - the style here is pure fun and sweetness, with red fruits, Vimto, cream soda sweetness and a lovely quenching acidity and fizz!

Food Matches

This wine is great by itself but also works well with salads (careful of the dressing) roast pork and crackling.
