Terra do Zambujeiro
Red Wine 2011
Vinho Regional Alentejano, Borba, Portugal
32% Aragonez, 30% Alicante Bouschet, 20% Trincadeira, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Touriga Nacional, 15,5% vol. Alc.
Handpicked, selection by hand, fermented in stainless steel fermenters, 3-4 weeks skin contact, malolactic fermentation in barrels of French oak, 50% new, 24 months barrel aged.
An intense and pleasant open bouquet shows lots of fruit character, scents of flowers and hints of spices. On the palate full bodied and creamy, soft, but built on a solid backbone of fine tannins. A beautiful sweet extract and a touch of minerality and the fresh acidity does balance the wine. Ready to drink but with a nice potential of at least 5 years.
With all kind of meat dishes or pastas.
Serve with 15 – 17°C.
Drink from 2015 – 2020
