O Produtor, tasting note published in October 21st 2019

Pink salmon colour, medium persistent bubble. Attractive nose of ripe red fruits such as redcurrant and strawberry complemented by delicate floral aromas of clove and honeysuckle, fresh mint and light smoky notes. In the mouth it reveals light and complex fruit flavours and a pleasant lemon aftertaste. Voluminous and round with the explosion of the bubble making it long and persistent.

Família Hehn

Vineyard located at an altitude of 700 m on a gentle slope facing south-east. Soil derived from a metamorphic series of schist with quartz outcrops. Sandy-sandy texture with some stoniness. The grapes, harvested in 20kg crates, were gently crushed, without destemming, in a pneumatic press, and the must was immediately pumped into stainless steel fermentation tanks, where the base wine fermentation took place. The wine was then bottled and placed in a cool cellar for the second fermentation according to the classic method, being after the bottle ageing the “ice disgorgement”. Aged in stainless steel tanks for approximately 1.5 years Aged in bottle on lees for 17 months Bottling date: 12 May 2018 Disgorgement date: 21 October 2019.

Hehn & Meireles

We are the Hehn Family, for many years linked to the Távora-Varosa Region, the region par excellence for sparkling wines in Portugal. From here and from our German origins comes the passion for sparkling wines. Our wines are created in Quinta da Seara, São Cosmado, Armamar. Situated on the slopes of the Rio Tedo, which flows into the Douro, facing south-east and at an altitude of 700 metres, this property is a unique terroir for the production of white and sparkling wines. The quinta has been in the family for several generations, with me, the current owner, viticulturist and winemaker, Marcos Hehn Pinto da Silva, being the fourth generation. The first vintage we bottled was in 2005 and today, 13 years later, we know that the wines from these southern Douro highlands have incredible ageing potential. We use the traditional castes of the region, white and red, from which we highlight Cercial Branco and Gouveio, but we also wanted to show that our land welcomes foreign castes. For this reason, and also honouring our German origins, we planted Riesling from Mosel, which has given us great pleasure.
