Revista de Vinhos, tasting note published in December 14th 2023

The nose is full of sour cherry and some floral notes. Reminiscent of Jura wines. In the mouth, it has a lot of expression and nerve. It has distinct layers, a lot of elegance, and depth. Finishes long and delicious.

Textura

Textura D. Áurea is a tribute to our grandmother Áurea, our connection to our Portuguese roots. Daughter of a Portuguese, born in Brazil, she left a lasting impression on everyone who knew her for her joyful and unifying spirit, full of vitality for life. This is a wine made from the Bastardo grape variety, exclusive and well expressing elegance, finesse, richness of flavors, and passion. Ideal for toasting to D. Áurea.

100% Bastardo from the sub-region of Dão Serra da Estrela, at an altitude of 600 meters and on granite soils.

The year 2020 had a generous winter in terms of rainfall, with a warm February that anticipated the budding of the vines. The summer was overall cool but marked by a period of intense heat. Harvest took place earlier, in early September, to preserve the freshness and elegance of this grape.

Vinification: Fermentation in lagar with 30% whole clusters and maceration for 15 days. Aging in barrels for 1 year.

D. Áurea is a wine with great complexity and enormous aging potential in the bottle.

Winemaking: Luis Seabra | Mariana Salvador

Textura Wines

Textura Wines is a family project started in 2018 in Dão on the slopes of Serra da Estrela and involving organic viticulture, terroir wine production and wine tourism. In search of existing vineyards in a region of small producers, we have 22 ha of vineyards on 7 different plots in Vila Nova de Tazem and in Penalva do Castelo. With a low-intervention oenology, which reflects the soil and the location of each of our vineyards, the aim is to achieve wines with character, elegant and distinctive. Respect for the place and its biodiversity (soil, flora and fauna, people and community), the preservation of resources (natural and cultural) and local development are the basis of our fundamental principles.
