PACHECA RESERVA RED
Producer: Quinta da Pacheca
Appelation: Douro DOC, Portugal
This wine is obtained from grapes of the Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz and Touriga Nacional varieties that come from vineyards planted in Quinta da Pacheca with around 40 years old.
After careful selection by their best state, the grapes were harvested for chests of 25 kg and sent to the winemaking center where they were fully destemmed. Fermentation occurred during 9 days in the traditional 14-ton granitic stone tanks with foot stepping and smooth reassembles for blanket leaching and extraction of phenolic and aromatic compounds. At the end of the alcoholic fermentation the wine was transferred into stainless steel vats where the malolactic fermentation occurred. It was later partially aged in 2nd and 3rd year French oak barrels during 12 months.
Pacheca Reserva Tinto has a nose where fruit stands out, notes of plums and cur- rants with a touch of coffee and dark chocolate. The wood is perfectly integrated. In the mouth is a rich and powerful wine with round and velvety tannins followed by great freshness and persistence. A ready- to-drink wine with great aging potential.
