Revista de Vinhos, tasting note published in January 25th 2023

Aromatically complex, with spices intertwining with black forest fruits. In the mouth, it is structured but characteristic, creamy and with fine and long tannins.

Quinta da Alorna

Founded in 1723, Quinta da Alorna is celebrating its third centenary and, to mark the occasion, is releasing a limited edition grand reserve: Quinta da Alorna 1723 Grande Reserve Red, marketed in conjunction with the book “From India to the Tagus, from the Tagus to the World: 300 years of Quinta da Alorna”.

Signed by Martta Reis Simões, chief winemaker of Quinta da Alorna, this wine was created solely for the celebration of the tercentenary and comes from the plateau vineyards and the grape varieties Tinta Miúda, Castelão and Alicante Bouschet.

Handpicked in 2019, in 18-kilogram crates, each bunch was handled until the maturation period. The three grape varieties were aged separately in French oak barrels for 10 months, “the time needed to integrate and envelop the concise fruit”, and the wine was bottled in November 2020, detailed by Quinta da Alorna.

“With a pH of 3.28, Quinta da Alorna 1723 Grande Reserve Red is an elegant and sumptuous wine that transcends and challenges oenological dogmas and is distinguished by the elegance of its flavors,” presents Martta Reis Simões.

Authored by Maria João de Almeida, with a foreword by Professor António Barreto and edited by Guerra e Paz, the book describes the moments and people that have most marked the evolution of the property and the company that has belonged to the Lopo de Carvalho family since the early 20th century.

Quinta da Alorna was launched in 1723 when D. Pedro de Almeida, First Marquis of Alorna, named the estate after he conquered Alorna Fort in India.

Near Tagus River, with ‘bela sombra’, a wonderful and rare tree in the entrance, Quinta da Alorna is known not only for wines of high quality but also for the splendor of whole estate.
