Tasting Notes

Colour: Vinha do Monte Red 2013 has a fine red colour.
Aroma: On the nose this wine shows a fruity and floral bouquet, with special emphasis on plum and mulberry, and also on spices.
Palate: On the palate it is also characterised by ripe fruits and flowers. It is a very complex and fresh wine, with fine acidity and a lingering and soft finish.


Harvest Year

Winter and Spring had lots of rainfall, the opposite of the last three years, which made it possible for the replacement of humidity in the soil, important for the growing and maturity of the grapes. The high level of water in the soil caused the harvest to start later than usual, since the phenolic and aromatic maturation of the grapes only occurred at the beginning of September. The conjugation of all these factors made that, apart from being a different year, it was possible to achieve a very high quality and elegant wine.
