O Produtor, tasting note published in May 27th 2017

This red has an intense ruby color. A seductive wine appears from these two grape varieties. Violet aromas of the Touriga Nacional variety combine with notes of red fruits from the Petit Verdot grape variety and French oak vanilla, to provide moments of rare enjoyment. In the mouth it is very soft, full bodied, harmonious and elegant. It has a long, soft finish.

Companhia Agrícola do Sanguinhal

Companhia Agrícola do Sanguinhal (CAS) was established by Abel Pereira da Fonseca in 1926 to administrate the estates that he owned in the region of Bombarral since the beginning of the century, still belonging to the same family.
He planted his first stand-alone vineyards (i.e. vines with no other fruit tree in between) aligned and wired, which was considered very innovating at the time, as there were no tractors. Vineyards were divided into plots, each planted with one sole variety (which was also new at the time). He introduced new varieties. In a separate plot at Quinta do Sanguinhal, he planted 30 different varieties to study their adaptability.
The company has undergone modernization over the past few years: vines were re-established based on traditional varieties as well as new varieties to meet market demand; wine-making and bottling facilities have experienced major investments at technological and equipment levels. The traditional ageing in French and American oak is nonetheless still used.
