Monte da Capela Reserve DOC Red

Classification: DO Alentejo
Grape Varieties: Aragonez, Trincadeira and Alicante Bouschet.
Method: After careful selection of the grapes, destemming and fermentation took place in stainless steel vats, with pumping-over and controlled fermentation temperature of 28 -30ºC and sustained fermentation on skins. The fermentation, with selected yeasts, last for 8 days, followed by a period of maceration with malolactic fermentation.
Ageing: The wine spent 12 month in new oak barrels (50% French / 50% American). To preserve its character, this wine did not go through cold stabilization, and therefore natural sediments may appear.

Tasting Notes

Colour: Garnet colour.
Aroma: Full and vivid nose, with a touch of fruit compote blended with subtle notes of smoke and vanilla from the wood.
Palate: Well balanced in the mouth, with fresh fruit, hints of vanilla and round tannins. Overall harmony.
Winemaker: Alexandra Mendes
