VINHA GRANDE RED
Producer Notes 2018
40% Touriga Franca, 30% Touriga Nacional, 25% Tinta Roriz, 5% Tinta Barroca
Vinha Grande is a Douro red wine, classic and intense, with a distinctive character that reflects the richness and quality of the region, in relation to the production of the best blended wines. Vinha Grande is part of the Casa Ferreirinha wine range. The brand has a rich tradition for producing quality Douro wines, and is well-known around the world.
It is vinified using refined technology in the wineries of Quinta do Seixo in Cima Corgo and Quinta da Leda in Douro Superior. After gentle crushing and destemming, the grapes are conveyed to stainless steel vats, where alcoholic fermentation takes place. During this phase, gentle maceration is carried out, with controlled temperature, in order to extract the compounds that contribute to the wine?s colour, aroma and flavour.
Deep ruby colour. Intense aroma of good complexity, with floral notes, rock rose, balsamic, heather, tobacco box and eucalyptus leaf, fresh red fruits, with discreet, well integrated wood. It has a smooth attack in the mouth, well integrated acidity, lively tannins, but round and of good quality, vivid red fruit, with a very long, harmonious finish.
Ideal to accompany meat dishes, such as traditional Portuguese stew and grilled red meat, but being a very gastronomic wine you can also pair it with white meat or oven-roasted fish.
