TASTING NOTES LAST TASTED: 2022
A vibrant red colour, this wine has an appealing aroma with notes of gooseberries, black plums and mustard seeds. On the palate, it is fresh, full-bodied and elegant. It has firm and sophisticated tannins that are very well-integrated.
In Vidigueira, 2019 was marked by a generally warm spring and early summer but there were cold nights and wet mornings. The summer saw wide temperature ranges: warm days and cold mornings with some humidity, a decisive factor in the freshness and quality of the grapes. There was some rainfall at the end of August that did not impact on ripening.
WINEMAKER: Luis Cabral de Almeida
VARIETIES: 56% Alicante Bouschet, 30% Touriga Nacional, 14% Syrah
Produced using grapes sourced from selected plots. After tests and monitoring, the grapes were collected at their optimum point of maturation. After destemming and soft crushing, maceration and fermentation followed using “pumping over” techniques in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 28oC for roughly 12 days. The resulting wines were intense, elegant and reflective of their origins.
After malolactic fermentation, the wines aged in French oak barrels for roughly 12 months. They subsequently underwent light fining prior to bottling. In order to preserve the highest possible quality, the wine was bottled without cold stabilisation treatment and a natural deposit may therefore form as it ages.
Store in a cool place. This wine will evolve positively in the bottle for 4-6 years due to its structure and acidity.
Serve at between 16oC-18oC. Once opened, consume immediately.
The complexity and structure of this wine make it the ideal accompaniment to meat dishes or other sophisticated cuisine.
