Quinta da Manoella Vinhas Velhas 2017

This wine is a field blend of more than 30 indigenous grape varieties. Havested in September, the grapes were foot trodden in granite lagares during all the fermentation process. The aging and malolactic fermentation was developed in French oak barriques during 20 months.

About the Vineyard

Very old vineyard with 107 years old which has a field blend of more than 30 different indigenous grape varieties.

Wine Production

The harvest was planned for the third week of September in perfect weather conditions. All grapes previously selected and de-stemmed were foot trodden in stone lagares during all the fermentation process ( 10 days). The aging was developed in french oak barriques during 20 months.

Tasting Notes

Full-bodied and deeply concentrated, with a spicy and floral aroma, flavours of blackberry and dark chocolate. Ripe, round and balanced with a notable acidity, firm tannins and a long finish.
