Vallado Douro Red

Red

Aroma:

Concentrated, with intense mature red fruit aromas, hints of violets and "esteva" (a local Portuguese resinous bush).

Taste:

Good structure with matured round tannins and a long persistent finish.

Vinification:

The grapes, from both the younger vineyards (Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca and Sousão - 80%) and older vineyards (over 70 years old - 20%), were fermented in 10 and 5 ton stainless steel tanks for a week. All wines were fermented under controlled temperature varying between 25º and 27ºC. The finest of the press wine, from a traditional basket press, was also used for ageing for the final blend.

Varieties:

Touriga Franca (25%), Touriga Nacional (25%), Tinta Roriz (25%), Sousão (5%) and mixed old vineyards (20%).

Ageing:

70% aged for 16 months in stainless steel tanks. The remaining 30% aged in 225 litres used French Oak barriques (3rd and 4th year) for 16 months until final blending.

Winemaker:

Francisco Olazabal & Francisco Ferreira
