Mateus Rosé

Why all this fuss about Mateus????

40 years ago, when I was a young teenager in Lisbon it was all the rage among tourists. I know it is still a well known Portuguese Rosé and full marks to the producers for their success but there are other equally good Portuguese Rosés.

Lots listed here (in portuguese but with pix):

 The top recommended Rosé listed on the site was: "Quinta da Lagoalva Rosé 2006"

Be brave! Try another grape for a change! Experiment! Portugal is not just Mateus!

(Although it is Licor Beirão....but that is entirely a different story!)
