Terra do Zambujeiro
Red Wine 2019
Borba, Vinho Regional, Alentejo, Portugal
38% Aragones, 27% Alicante Bouschet, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Touriga Nacional, 04% Syrah, 03% Petit Verdot, 15% vol. Alc.
Hand harvested from yield reduced vineyards. Grapes are hand sorted on conveyor belts. Fermented in steel tanks. Matured for 24 months in 25% new and 75% used french oak barrels. No fining, unfiltered.
An iconic red with intensity and lots of structure. It displays plenty of dark fruit, opulent scents of roses and violets, dried orange peel, hints of smoke, mint, and crème de cassis. Solid and dense, finegrained tannins, beautiful balance, lots of delicious fruit-extract, extremely long in finish.

Drink from 2022 on to 2035. Store below 15°C.
