Vallado Vinha da Coroa

Red

Aroma:
Red and woodland fruits, with a touch of toast, reminiscent of the barrels in which the wine aged.
 
Taste:
A very fresh wine, with a hint of spices and a lingering after-taste recalling red fruits. Completed by a soothing vegetable taste.
 
Vinification:

The grapes ferment for 14 days in stainless steel vats, 50% of them with stalk, and without any crushing.
 
Varieties:
These grapes originate from an old vineyard, over 100 years old, planted with 34 different grape varieties. "Vinha da Coroa" is located on one of the highest locations at Quinta do Vallado, like a crown over all other vineyards. Thus its name, "Coroa".
 
Ageing:
After a 14-day fermentation period with very little extraction, the wine aged for approximatly 18 months in 2nd year French oak barrels.

Winemakers:
Francisco Olazabal & Francisco Ferreira
