Poças Pink Port

A light and fresh Port wine Rosé with a touch of sweetness. Poças honour the legacy of traditional Ports by using their expertise to create this very aromatic wine with hints of berry flavors.

Tasting Notes

Very pleasant fruity flavours of cherry and raspberry. Fresh, smooth, light and very fruity.

 

Production

Poças Pink Port created respecting the heritage of traditional Ports is done with a method similar to that employed in the production of Ruby Port. The difference lies in reducing the period of maceration, the skins of the grapes contact with the liquid resulting in a pinkish colour instead of a Ruby Red.

Producer - Poças Júnior

In 1918, a few months before the Armistice, Manoel Domingues Poças Júnior, who had been born in the heart of the Port Wine hustle and bustle, decided to establish his own company. Manoel Poças was 30 years old and he had some experience in this business. With his uncle, he created a company to sell grape spirits to large Port Wine shippers. Soon afterwards he opened a head office in Vila Nova de Gaia, where they remain to this day. Today, with three quintas in the best winemaking areas of the Douro Demarcated Region, Poças ensures its total control over the quality of its wines and the family is more involved than ever before.
