Rose


Download Complete Production Notes

Lancers was launched in 1944 after Henry Behar visited Portugal with the purpose of finding a rosé wine that would appeal to the American palate. The wine was named Lancers in tribute to the painting “Las Lanzas” by Velasquez, a favorite of Mr. Behar. In addition to this lively, aromatic rosé, Lancers offers a fun, refreshing white wine. Both are made from a variety of carefully selected Portuguese grapes.

Production Area
The grapes for this wine are sourced from Azeitão, Portugal.

Grape Varieties
A variety of the best Portuguese grapes.

Vinification
Red grapes are fermented apart from their skins at a temperature of approximately 60ºF. The wine then undergoes a process known as “continuous method” which provides Lancers Rose with its touch of effervescence. In the process, the wine is filtered, cold stabilized, and then a small quantity of naturally sweet grape juice and yeast is added. The wine then passes through a series of stainless steel tanks at 65ºF and an atmospheric pressure of 4.5 Bars for a period of eight days while the secondary fermentation is completed. Prior to bottling, additional fresh grape juice is added to ensure the desired level of sweetness, followed by a final finishing filtration.

Color
Clear, bright pink with a salmon hue.

Bouquet
Fragrant, with scents of fresh berries.

Taste
Delightfully approachable style, with lively fruit flavors that extend into the finish.

Alcohol
11%

Serving Suggestions
