Having lived in Portugal many of the wines are known to us and it is great to now enjoy so many that were part of our regular purchases. The extensive range offered by Portugal Vineyards allows us to try others and extend our selection. Portuguese wines are some of the best in the world and it is so good to be able to enjoy them on a daily basis once more. "Portugalvineyards" service is excellent and by carefully judging the quantity to order the carriage costs are quite acceptable.

Winemaking:
On arrival at the winery, the grapes underwent full de-stemming and were softly crushed, followed by fermentation and maceration through pumping-over in stainless steel tanks at a 28ºC controlled temperature for about 15 days. When the required organoleptic balance was achieved, the free-run juice was set aside and the must was softly pressed. A wine of great quality and elegance was achieved, dominated by primary notes of fruit, with great expression of the local grape varieties. Following malolactic fermentation the wine matured for about a year in used French and Caucasian oak barrels. The final blend was prepared from a qualitative selection arrived at through numerous tasting sessions and analyses carried out during this period, which made it possible to choose the best wines by barrel and variety. In order to preserve the highest quality, this wine was bottled without cold stabilisation, which may cause it to throw a deposit during ageing.
