Estremoz / Alentejo / Portugal
Regional Alentejo Wine
Alicante Bouschet (45%), Trincadeira (25%), Touriga Nacional (25%) and Petit Verdot (5%).
The grapes are selected on the sorting table, destemming , and then the cold maceration process takes place. It is fermented in controlled-temperature tanks and trodden.
When the malolactic fermentation has finished, the wine matures for 18 months in 1st and 2nd and year French and American oak barrels. After bottling the bottle rests for 12 months in the cellar. To preserve all its qualities this wine was not stabilised and sediments may form naturally.
Clear wine, deep cherry color, aromas of plum, fig, dark chocolate and spices, with floral notes. Complex, structured and bulky, notes of toasted oak barrel and persistent finish, revealing the full potential of aging.
Between 20 and 30 years, if stored in a cool and dark place with the bottle lying down.
