O Produtor, tasting note published in April 6th 2021
The open ruby colour, very attractive, hints at elegance in the tasting. With no barrel ageing, it is faithful to the fruity aromas typical of the Pinot Noir variety, with ripe strawberries, guava and cherries standing out in a slightly vegetal background. In the mouth it is vibrant, enveloping and very elegant. It goes particularly well with sardines, barbecues, vegetarian and oriental dishes. Try it with strawberry ice cream.
Manual harvest and selection of the grapes in the winery. Fermentation was done with 30% of the grapes in whole bunch (without destemming) and little extraction, in order to preserve all its varietal character. Aged for 6 months in stainless steel vats.
30 years ago, when Ole Martin Siemfirst came to Portugal, the agricultural background from his educational and professional path led him to recognize the ideal soil and climate conditons for wine production in the region. Ole Martin Siem was born in Norway, but he has travelled all over the world developing his business of fruit and vegetables production and trade. Of all the visited countries, Portugal stood out both for the quality of the Alentejo wines and for the stunning landscapes of the Vicentino coast. It was ther, where the sea and the cliffs meet in one unique ecosystem that he chose to planthis vineyards. The harvested grapes from these vineyards, the result of hours of work and dedication, are the secret of the Vicentino.
