Body Description:

Vinho Regional Transmontano

Tasting Note: Intense aromas of red plum, black cherry, violet, tomato leaf, rosemary and a touch of freshly turned earth and mushroom. Dry, medium body with well integrated acidity. Mouth filling, ripe but fresh black fruit aroma lingers on the palate and evolves into lilac and savory herbal aroma on the finish. The weight, aroma and acidity make this a superb red wine for the table.

Viticulture & Vinification: Grapes were handpicked during the cool hours of the early morning and immediately transported to the winery in small boxes. After de-stemming, the grapes were gently crushed and gravity fed into stainless steel tanks. Fermentation with temperature control for about 15 days. Aged in 1-year-old French oak barrels for 6 months. Bottled unfiltered in May of 2015.
