Herdade da Fonte Seca Reserve Red



Region: Alentejo. Portugal
Varieties: Aragonez and  Trincadeira
Oenologist: Engº Fernando Soares



Vinification

The previously selected grapes are carried exclusively in 20 Kg boxes and submitted to a thermal shock in a cold storage chamber before being de-stemmed. The vinification is then done in the winery using the most advanced technology. Each variety is fermented separately at a controlled temperature.
Ageing: After fermentation, the wine undergoes a 8 months period in new oak barrels and more 12months in the bottle. The wine is then bottled without any filtering so as to maintain the quality of the final product.

Tasting notes

Aroma: Red fruit aroma with hints of toasted coffee.
Palate: In the mouth, it is a full-bodied wine, sustained by tannins derived from grapes and from the short time it is stored in oak barrels. It ends in a gentle but persistent way
Storing: Should be stored horizontally in a cool and dry place
Serving: Should be served between 16-20ºC. Has great potential for ageing in the bottle.
