Tasting Notes: Grão Vasco Dão Red 2012 is bright, ruby-red in colour with an intense, fruity aroma, predominantly strawberry, plum and blackberry, combined with vegetal notes that give it freshness. This is an elegant, medium-bodied, remarkably well-balanced wine with good, fresh acidity, smooth, rounded tannins and a lingering finish.
Winemaking: The grapes were destemmed and gently crushed, then conveyed by gravity to stainless steel fermentation vats with automatic temperature control and pumping over. The fermentation took around 5 days, during which the wine was pumped over numerous times to encourage gentle extraction of aromatic and phenolic compounds from the skins. It was susequently racked off into storage tanks and the solids were gently pressed in pneumatic presses to extract the wine they contained.
Maturation: After undergoing malolactic fermentation, Grão Vasco Dão Red 2012 was aged in stainless steel vats until bottling. Bottling is done in batches, in order to maintain the freshness of the blend. The bottled wine is aged for varying lengths of time before release.
