Estremoz / Alentejo / Portugal
Alentejo Regional Wine
Alicante Bouschet (70%), Syrah (15%) and Touriga Franca (15%).
The grapes are selected on the filtering table, destalked, and then the cold maceration process takes place. Fermentation is carried out in controlledtemperature tanks and the grapes are trodden.
When the malolactic fermentation process finished, the wine was matured for 6 months in stainless steel vats. After being bottled, the wine was rested in the bottle for 6 months in the cellar. To preserve all its qualities this wine was not stabilised, and sediments may be created naturally.
Clear, deep red wine, with black fruit, blackberry, plum and cherry aromas, and hints of liquor. It is an intense, full-bodied and well-structured wine, with a vinous and lasting finish.
Between 5 and 10 years, if stored in a cool and dark place with the bottle lying down.
