Vinha da Coroa

Aroma

Red and woodland fruit, with a hint of toast, from the barrels in which it aged.

Taste

A very elegant and fresh wine, with a hint of spices and a lingering after-taste of red fruits, completed by a soothing vegetable taste and excellent tannins.

Vinification

After hand-picking, the grapes are divided in two lots. 50% goes into stainless steel vats with stems and without crushing, making for carbonic maceration, and fermentation for 14 days. The remaining 50% are crushed and destemmed, also fermenting for 14 days in stainless steel vats.

Varieties

The name of this wine comes from the location of the vineyard from which it comes - Vinha da Coroa is located at the highest point of Quinta do Vallado. It is an old vine, planted in 1958, facing North and with a field blend of 27 different varieties.

Ageing

After fermentation with very little extraction, the wine ages for approximatly 18 months in 2nd use French oak barrels.
