O Produtor, tasting note published in May 23rd 2019
With an intense red colour, it has notes of red fruit, such as cherry and plum combined with "nuanes" of chocolate, mocha coffee and spices; in the mouth it is full, with ripe fruit combined with fine and elegant but firm tannins that give it a complex and very persistent structure.
Inspired by the famous Pomerol de Bordeaux, the “design” of the first Portuguese 100% Merlot wine started with the planting of a first vineyard in Má Partilha in the 80’s, followed by others always in Azeitão’s clay-limestone. Since the first bottled harvest, in 1986, the same type of winemaking has been maintained, respecting the full-bodied but very elegant profile of this brand. Entirely produced with the Merlot variety, in clay-calcareous soils, the climatic conditions of the Arrábida mountain range allow the obtaining of grapes of this variety with strong local personality. Classic, slow and controlled fermentation was carried out followed by an end of fermentation in new French oak barrels of the “Allier” type which contributed to the excellent integration of the aromas and flavours of the grape and the wood. After prolonged maturation in the same barrels, the complexity of the palate was guaranteed. Limited to existing stock.
