R from Javali

Tasting Notes 

Intense red color. The nose is dominated by notes of red fruits, with some hints of strawberry and raspberry jam, accompanied by nuances of spices. In a well-integrated manner, there are also vegetal notes derived from the use of stems during fermentation. On the palate, the fruity aromas are confirmed, in harmony with a present yet elegant structure.  

Grape Varieties 

Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional e Tinto Cão. 

Vinification and Aging 

Manual harvest in 20 kg crates. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks with a percentage of whole clusters. After alcoholic fermentation, the wine is aged in used 500L French oak barrels. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation occurs, contributing to the complexity and smoothness of the wine. No cold stabilization process is applied, and the wine is only lightly filtered before being bottled, preserving the maximum of its natural characteristics.
