Grand Reserve Red 2011
Strong with floral aromas.
The art of winemaking is celebrated in this limited edition through a special selection made by our winemakers. Their passion for Douro wine production is what makes our wines unique, differentiated by the exceptional interpretation of nature and the essence of the region.
Traditional foot treading in a lagar, fermented at controlled temperature (to extract and preserve grape complexity) and aging in French oak barrels during 14 months. This wine has an intense ruby colour and floral aromas, from the grape variety Touriga Nacional, with emphasis of violets. It is enhanced by the aroma of vanilla and black fruit, plums and strawberry. In the mouth it is strong, dense and full and has a long finish.
This wine should be kept in a place protected from light, between 14 and 16ºC, in a horizontal position. It is ready to be consumed, although with time small deposits may appear and a decanter may be necessary. It is perfect with roasted goat, game meat and other strong flavoured meat dishes. Serve between 16 and 18ºC.
