THE WINE

2013


This red wine is an exceptional Organic wine, with a ruby red color, great aroma, intensity, complexity  and elegance.

 

Subsoil conditions, the Mediterranean climate, the complexity of the water and the irrigation system allow the cultivation of this vineyard of the grapes "trincadeira" and "aragonês". Its grapes are gifted with an unusual quality.

 

These vines are manually harvested, and the grapes are chosen on site, transported with boxes no heavier than 15 Kg, in order to avoid crushing during transport. At the moment of arrival at the winery, the grapes are yet again selected and then vinified.

 

The vinification is conducted with a mild crushing and post-fermentation maceration, in accordance with biological production techniques. The whole fermentation process is constantly controlled by laboratory analysis.

 

This wine of high quality is only possible by the synergy between biological production of high quality grapes, and high-tech wine-macking techniques.

 

The aromas that stand out are the ones  reminding wild berries, suggesting blueberries, currants and raspberries, also providing slight sensation of spices and roasts.


It has a silky smooth taste with good structure, fruity flavour and a long finish. 

 

There are notorious floral and balsamic notes, which stand out in the mouth giving elegance and revealing freshness. 

 

A couple of hours after the opening, one can notice a slight salty taste, reminding the subsoil below the vineyards..

 

The copper color of the label is a clear allusion to the subsoil of the vineyard and its geological metallic composition: a high copper, pyrite, gold and silver concentration.
