Concentrated deep purple color. Attractive aroma, where the deep notes of ripe fruit, chocolate and some smokiness come together in perfect complexity. In the mouth, strong body where elegant tannins and well framed acidity make this wine full of fruit, powerful, with a persistent finish.
In 2014, a year of drought, Aliança decided to make another vintage of T Quinta da Terrugem due to the excellent condition of the grapes. Trincadeira and Aragonez were harvested in the second week of September, the Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested in the last week of September. The Aragonez and Trincadeira developed nicely as these are two varieties that thrive in periods of drought. All grapes varieties were fermented separately in stainless steel temperature controlled tanks. After fermentation, the wine spent 18 months in new French oak (225 liter) barrels. After a careful selection of the very best vats, the final blend is made.
