Good quality wines at reasonable prices and so many to choose from! Ordering is easy and straightforward and delivery normally takes around two weeks. I know very little about Portuguese grape varieties but am more than happy to spend a little time learni

It is lovely to buy Portuguese wines at Portuguese prices and the shipping charge hardly makes a dent in my significant saving. Gosto dos serviços de Portugal Vineyards.

The age of Grão Vasco Reserva do Museu 1996 is revealed in the orange colour of the wine and the tertiary aromas present. The aroma also reveals some fruit, hints of the forest, with pine needles, eucalyptus and a good plant component that gives freshness to the bouquet. It is a wine that has managed to keep its freshness alive over time and become more complex and elegant. Wines like this don’t let us forget that Dão is a region where time is essential and it plays a key role in the excellence of the older wines.

Winemaking:
After delivery of the grapes intended for the production of Grão Vasco Reserva, they are first destemmed and then gently crushed, before being conveyed by gravity to stainless steel fermentation vats. Fermentation lasted for around 10 days, during which the must was subjected to a number of pumping overs in order to gently bring out the phenolic compounds in the skins. The wine was then removed to ageing vats, where alcoholic fermentation took place. Grão Vasco Reserva do Museu 1996 matured for 9 months in used French oak barrels, after malolactic fermentation.

Grape Varieties:
Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Alfrocheiro, Jaen, Tinta Pinheira
