This wine is a blend of 40% Trincadeira, 40% Alfrocheiro and 20% Alicant Bouschet, maturation taking place in French oak for 12 months plus an additional 8 months in bottle before release, alcohol comes in at 14%.
Great nose on this blend with aromas of ripe berries, cherry, plum, sweet spices, floral and wood spice notes. On the mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft seductive fruit flavours, spicy with balanced acidity and silky tannins. The wine finish is long, fruit driven, slightly spicy, very smooth with good energy. This wine doesn’t scream Portugal to me, definitely not rustic for sure but well made, not overly manipulated, made in a more modern style. There is a real elegance and sophistication about this wine, I did enjoy two bottles of Quinta Do Quetzal Reserva 2007 and both were consistently good.
