Producer Notes 2012

In a quality range of incoming range of wines from Real Companhia Velha, Evel has maintained a solid reputation for many years. The Evel wine is produced from the vineyards located in the famous Quinta do Casal da Granja and Quinta do Cidrô, located in the counties of Alijó and S. João da Pesqueira, respectively.

Year 2012
The winter period (December to February) was the driest of the last 40 years. The evolution of the drought was slightly attenuated in April and especially in May. Sprouting due to the March temperature occurred within the average dates, and a delay was observed until the beginning of flowering, which was driven by a significant and sudden increase in temperature, occurring on average around 25 May. Subsequently the low temperature observed gave rise to a further delay in the vegetative cycle, which lasted until the beginning of the harvest. It is important to highlight for the year 2012, the low availability of water in the soil, to condition the vigor of the plants and the occurrence of strong discord and "bagoinha". In spite of all the difficulties, the grapes arrived in Adega in perfect conditions, mature, concentrated and with excellent acidity. Despite being a year of low production we will have excellent quality wines.

Winemaking and Ageing
The fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks, with temperature control. The wine estates in Vila Nova de Gaia, in French oak barrels for 8 months, where it is carefully prepared and bottled in the headquarters of Real Companhia Velha.

Tasting Notes
A young, bright wine of deep ruby color. Notes of very mature fruits, mixed by typical plant nuances of the region and slight touches of vanilla, from the stage in wood. Rounded on the palate, with excellent structure and soft tannins, providing a fruity and persistent finish.
