Julian Reynolds

Viticulture and Enology: The grapes were collected from the own vineyard close to the winery after a strict selection to reduce production. The harvest was carried out at night. The different varieties were fermented separately in Seguin Moreau French oak vats at controlled temperature forcing a longer period of time. The wine was aged for a period of 12 months in Seguin Moreau French oak barrels. The bottles rested in the cellar for 18 months before they left the winery. Tasting notes: The aroma has fresh fruit in a perfect marriage with wood, which are revealed in the mouth with fine and elegant tannins, a nice long set of persistence. Suggestions: Wine for all occasions, an excellent complement to red meats, grilled fish and spicy food. It should be served at a temperature of 16ºC to 18ºC.

Reynolds Wine Growers

Thomas Reynolds, an English seaman and merchant, arrived in Portugal in 1820, attracted by the potential of the wine trade. He settled in the northern town of Porto with his two sons, Thomas and Robert, and from there they supplied their London store with a variety of products from the Iberian Peninsula. In 1838, they became involve in the cork industry and set up a factory for the manufacture of cork stoppers in Alburquerque (Spain), where they lived for eleven years. It was a profitable business and soon new cork factories opened in Portugal and Spain.

The family returned to Portugal in 1850 and moved to Estremoz for a short time. However, Thomas and his son of the same name were not the settling kind: stirred by the same spirit of entrepreneurship, they set sail for New Zealand, a long voyage of 130 days, taking with them a large flock of merino sheep. They never returned to Portugal.

Robert, meanwhile, had remained in Estremoz to take care of the business and soon expanded it with the purchase of new land for the production of quality wine, an activity for which he was particularly passionate. The Alentejo soon became the resting place in Portugal of the Reynolds family and of Robert, the family patriarch. It was here that his first son, Robert Rafael, was born, who later had a son called Carlos. Carlos’s first child was a daughter whom he named Gloria – Gloria Reynolds. To honour his mother and all his ancestors who lived in the Alentejo, Gloria’s son Julian produce a quality wine, which carries his mother’s name – Gloria Reynolds.
