Revista de Vinhos, tasting note published in November 1st 2023

Golden yellow. Aromatic complexity with notes of ripe peach, reineta apple, orange zest, thyme, and basil. On the palate, it is citrusy, displaying volume and creaminess, with a refreshing saline touch and well-balanced acidity.

Casal das Aires

The Casal das Aires project represents the return to my origins, the Tagus region, centered on my interpretations of different grape varieties, in the different terroirs of the region. Produced on the Charneca Ribatejana terroir in loamy clay soil, vinified in used 225L French oak barrels and aged for 9 months

Winemaker Joana Pinhão

winemaking
The grapes are harvested by hand, only in the morning to preserve maximum night freshness and maintain the best quality. Upon arrival at the cellar, they undergo rigorous screening, gentle pressing followed by total fermentation in 225L barrels. After fermentation, we opted for aging for 9 months in contact with the fine lees, but without stirring. Before bottling, the wine is aged for 3 months in stainless steel vats, followed by 4 months in bottle.

Casal das Aires

The Casal das Aires project is the result of the search for a new expression of Tejo, a fresher, more elegant Tejo. This search, based on the experience we have gained, is reflected in the first two wines we have created to make this dream come true, Casal das Aires Pinot Noir and Casal das Aires Chardonnay. Our vineyards are located in Charneca, in the municipality of Alpiarça, on silty soils, and we favour small production over quantity. Our aim is always to preserve the region’s wine-growing ecosystem.
