On arrival at the winery at Quinta dos Carvalhais the grapes, separated by variety, were de-stemmed and softly crushed, and transferred by gravity into stainless steel automatic temperature controlled fermenting tanks. Here, the must fermented for about 8 days, with pumping-over for soft extraction of the skin aromas and compounds. Following alcoholic fermentation the wine is transferred into stainless steel tanks where malolactic fermentation took place. Maturation in French and American oak wood hogsheads took place for a period of 12 months. The final blend was prepared after this period of maturation, followed by fining, filtering and bottling.
Touriga Nacional,Tinta Roriz,Alfrocheiro
It has a ruby hue of fine intensity. With a complex bouquet, the delicate presence of floral and black tea notes, both characteristic of Touriga Nacional, combine with notes of fresh red fruits, especially raspberry and gooseberry, wild shrubs (broom) and menthol. It has subtle, well-integrated oak notes, contributing to the richness of this wine?s palate. It is a well-structured wine, with tight tannins, a lively acidity and a balanced finish.
Store and Serve Advices:
As with all good Dão reds, this wine has excellent ageing potential and it is in prime drinking condition for up to 10 years after the vintage. The bottle should be kept horizontally in a dry and cool place. Should be served at between 16ºC-18ºC. Once open, the bottle should be drunk on the same day, although it will remain in good condition if well corked, ideally with some vacuum.
Excellent with meat, game and various types of buttery cheese. Try it with asparagus, lasagna and brie cheese.
