Tasting notes

One of the most concentrated Quinta Vale D. Maria of the latest years, but with more intensity and freshness. Violet colour, with an incredible concentration of mature dark red fruit, black cherries and plums and spicy aromas. Velvety tannins and a lingering fruit, make this wine fine and elegant.

Producer

AVELEDA, SA

Vinification and aging

Grapes are de-stemmed and foot trodden in granite lagars for 1 to 3 days. Each parcel or plot will ferment separately either in the granite lagars or / and in the stainless steel tanks. Wines in lagar will have foot treading every night, whilst the stainless steel tanks will undergo manual pump-overs. We then rack the resulting wines in new Allier French oak 225-liter casks from various coopers, where they go through malolactic fermentation. All wines are then carefully aged for 21 months in barriques (60% new and 40% one year old), keeping all different fermentations completely separated until the final blending takes place, just about one month before the bottling of the wines.
