MONTE DAS ÂNFORAS RED
Producer Notes 2018
The 2018 harvest was produced from a selection of Aragonez and Trincadeira Grapes grown in different vineyards of Alentejo. Aragonez and Trincadeira are produced in Arronches (Portalegre) Oratory (Borba) Redondo and Arraiolos where the soils are predominantly Clay-schist. Monte das Ânforas was made at the new and modern winery, Quinta do Carmo, in Estremoz, resorting to traditional vinification with a short maceration period, where the varieties are vinified separately in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures, enabling us to preserve the fruit aromas. Finally a batch fermentation is done so that the wine maintains its modern, young and fresh character.
Deep color and a rich bouquet with notes of red fruits. The palate is full bodied and smooth with a good sense of freshness and notes where the flavors of red fruits are combined with spicy ones.
