Tasting Quinta De La Rosa Wines

Of all the wines that the lovely winemaking country of Portugal has to offer, we know only of Port (the sweet red fortified wine, usually known as an after-dinner drink for the old and fuddy-duddy) and a sweet pink fizzy little number called the Mateus Rosé (in its atypical shaped bottle).
