Calem Rosé Port (box of 6 bottles)
António Alves Cálem
Some of his contemporaries may have mistaken António Alves Cálem for an incurable adventurer, but it was entrepreneurship that fuelled his passion. When he founded Porto Cálem in 1859, he set his sights on crossing the Atlantic and exporting to Brazil. This at a time when Port was typically shipped to the British Isles and other European markets. Beaten paths were not for Cálem. Once he eventually set route to Brazil, his first transactions were done in exotic woods. Again, this could have easily been misjudged as a bold decision when, in fact, it was a pondered risk that forwarded a very successful business relationship.
The Douro, the oldest demarcated region in the world, grew the grapes. The cellars of Gaia aged the wine. And António Alves Cálem planned the enterprise. Dauntless, he prepared for an adventure that is still ongoing four generations later.
Calem Rosé Port
Calem Rosé Port is made from a blend of traditional grapes from the Douro area with mainly the Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa and Tinta Roriz.
This rosé port smells of red fruits and flowers. A fris bouquet, silky and refreshing in the mouth. You also taste subtle tones of cherries and raspberries.
