O Produtor, tasting note published in May 27th 2016

It presents aromas of well-present red fruits combined with nuances of wood and spices; in the mouth the sensations of incarnated fruits are enhanced and combined with soft tannins well present; has a fresh finish, something mineral, elegant and very complex.

The vineyard planted in Quinta da Bacalhôa finds the ideal “terroir” for the production of excellent wines – red and well drained calcareous soils with mild climate due to the strong Atlantic influence. The grapes chosen in the Quinta’s vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot benefit from natural conditions for slow and balanced maturation. In 2012, both Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon presented to the harvest, very healthy grapes, very ripe, with round and present tannins. The vintage was normal given the great quality of the grapes. After the fermentation of the elementary wines at controlled temperature, a period of “cuvaison” (post-fermentative skin maceration) of one week occurred. With a careful selection, contemplating numerous tests and analyzes, the final lot was created that staged in new French oak barrels for 12 months.
