Tasting notes:

The Dalva Rosé Port is a lovely, vivacious pink colour with a refreshing nose of strawberry, raspberry, a touch of sweet cherry and floral hints.

The palate is equally delightful, with soft acidity and lively fruitiness. There is more sweet cherry, raspberry and strawberry with extra touches of honeyed grapefruit and lingering candied cherry. 

Serve this cold with a beautiful sunset. 

About the port:

The Rosé port is made as if a Ruby port, with one key difference. After harvesting, the grapes are pressed, the must is then left for a limited time on it's skins, imbuing the lovely pink colour. A longer period of maceration would produce a Ruby Port. 

After the maceration and fermentation is completed to the desired level, a neutral grape spirit is added to the wine. This halts fermentation, increases the alcohol content and leaves a significant amount of residual sugar, hence the sweetness.

The Rosé port undergoes limtied ageing in concrete and stainless steel vats, preserving the bright refreshing qualities of the wine. 

About the producer:

The company was established in the Douro in 1862 by the Portuguese family, Correa Ribeiro. The name was then changed in 1957 to the now C. da Silva when Mr Clemente da Silva received the company through marriage.

The company is dedicated to perfecting the art of production of  the finest port, through careful selection of the best wines in each vintage. 

During the ageing process, careful monitoring of quality takes place by highly skilled winemakers in modern, technologically advanced laboratories.
