Maintaining its classical style, Quinta da Bacalhôa presents red fruits aromas, combined with wood and spices nuances. In the mouth, the sensations of red fruits are highlighted and combined with soft tannins. It has a fresh, slightly mineral, elegant and very complex ending.
The vineyard planted at Quinta da Bacalhôa finds the ideal “terroir” for the production of excellent wines - red and well drained limestone soils with mild climate due to the strong Atlantic influence. The grapes chosen in Quinta’s vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, benefit from natural conditions for slow and balanced maturation. After the fermentation of the elementary wines at controlled temperature, a period of ‘cuvaison’ (post-fermentative skin maceration) of a week was followed. With a careful selection, contemplating numerous tests and analyzes, the final lot was created which staged in new French oak barrels for 14 months.
