Winemaking:
Vinified at Quinta da Leda's modern winery, the grapes, after full de-stemming and soft crushing, were fermented in stainless steel tanks and granite presses. Maceration was adjusted to each variety, and temperature control and pumping-over were applied in accordance with the characteristics of each of one. This enabled the quality components of each variety to softly to pass from the ripe grape skin to the wine. Between October and December the wines were taken to Vila Nova de Gaia where maturing for about a year in 225-litre oak barrels, 50% new, and 50% used one, took place. The Quinta da Leda final blend was made from a very careful selection after numerous tasting sessions that made it possible to choose the wines from the best barrels. The final blend underwent a slight filtering prior to bottling, but a deposit may develop over the years.

Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz

Store and Serve Advices:
The bottle should be kept horizontally in a dry and cool place. Quinta da Leda is a surprising wine whose qualities can be enhanced if opened some time prior to serving, (ideally one hour), as well as decanted. Serve between 16ºC-18ºC.

Food Pairing:
Its elegant and complex profile makes it ideal with fine meats, game and intense cheeses. One suggestion is to serve it with duck magret with noodles, Chinese mushrooms and rocket.
