Sexy - Red Wine
Mediterranean, with hot and dry days and cold nights.
All our grapes come from the highest quality vineyards in the Alentejo region, south of Portugal. The vines are grown in very poor soils of schist or granite origin, naturally originating very concentrated grapes. The aromatic profile is further enhanced by cultural practices such as defoliation, topping and weeding of green bunches.
Grape varieties : Touriga Nacional (40%), Syrah (25%), Aragonês (25%), Cabernet Sauvignon (10%).
Conservation and service: Wine with a lot of alcohol. Store at 16-18º C to be served at 18-20ºC.
Winemaking: Very selective manual harvest in 20 kg boxes. Transport to the winery in a cold truck. The bunches are carefully selected on a choice table and then the grapes are gently crushed and transported to the gravity fermentation vats. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentations are natural and spontaneous.
Gastronomy: Accompanies white and red meat dishes, both in traditional and modern cuisine. Avoid spicy dishes.
Tasting Notes: Intense ruby-violet color with an intense aroma of forest fruits with notes of spices and good French oak toffee. In the tasting it is full-bodied, with ripe tannins. Balanced acidity and good persistence.
