Vinified at Herdade do Peso, using grapes from selected plots. The grapes were harvested at their optimum point of phenolic/aromatic/alcoholic/acid maturation. After total destemming and soft crushing, it was macerated and fermented, with pumping over in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature of 26ºC, for about 8 days.
After malolactic fermentation, the wines aged in French and Caucasian oak barrels of 2nd, 3rd and 4th years, for about 6 months. They were submitted to a light fining and filtration, before bottling.
Twas perfect for burger night. And a great start to Mystery Case #22
One of the best for a slow down/be calm and a great expression of place. The Terroir for a relaxing meal.
A vibrant ruby colour wine with intense notes of red fruit and delicate hints of wood. On the palate, it is smooth and elegant, with prominent tannins. Balanced acidity reveals a long and fresh finish.
