Quinta do Quetzal Cabernet Sauvignon


Varieties: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon


Winemakers: Rui Reguinga and José Portela.
Soil: Sloping slate soils white low production potential.
Climate: Mediterranean, with some continental influence. Cold winters with rain concentrated between October and February ( average annual precipitation of about 700 mm ) and veryhot summers.
Vinification: Our fine Cabernet is made from the grapes from a single vineyard plot. The grapes are harvested into small crates and immediately taken to the winery and cooled to a temperature of 15°C. They are then separated, crushed and placed in a French oak fermenting vat. Fermentation takes 8 to 10 days at a temperature of 25°C. Pumping over is carried out 4 or 5 times daily for 15-minute periods. After fermentation the wine is placed in 225-litre French oak barriques, where it ages for 12 months, with a further 8 months in bottle.
