João Guedes, tasting note published in May 25th 2019

The wine has a ruby color and aroma of red fruits and berries. It’s a fruity wine with soft tannins. As a perfect match, I recommend soft cheeses.

Herdade Monte da Cal

It is within the genuine Alentejo, of aromas, flavors and unique textures, that extend the 80 hectares of vineyard of Herdade Monte da Cal, located in the municipality of Fronteira, in the parish of São Saturnino, about 40 km from Portalegre. Surrounded by the tranquility of the north Alentejo plain, it is inserted in the calm environment of the characteristic nature of this zone of the country, surrounded by the infinity of vines, that we only see, far away. Here, the red varieties Trincadeira, Syrah, Aragonês, Alicante Bouschet, Alfrocheiro and Touriga Nacional are planted; and the white Antão Vaz, Viognier, Arinto and Alvarinho. The architecture and decoration of the estate reflect the Arab influences, so present in Alentejo culture. The modern winery of the estate is a fundamental pillar to enhance the visibility of the wines of this house, and an enotourism project is already foreseen for this property. The wines of the Monte da Cal estate – more fruity, concentrated and with a higher acidity – reflect the typical terroir of the North Alentejo.
