Pacheca Vale de Abraão reveals a deep violet color. It’s very elegant in aroma with significant black fruit notes, like blueberry and blackcurrant, being fresh at the same time with floral notes. In the mouth it’s concentrated with very rounded tannins, notes of chocolate and implicit freshness. Long and very persistent finish.
Douro DOC, Portugal
Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional
18 months in 2nd and 3rd year French oak barrels
This is a wine obtained from grapes of Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional grape varieties from Quinta de Vale de Abraão, Rio Pinhão Valley the Vilariça Valley vineyards.
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 de-stemmed. Fermentation occurred during 9 days in the traditional 8-ton granitic stone tanks with a first foot stepping of 4 hours 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 2nd and 3rd year French oak barrels where malolactic fermentation occurred and aged for about 18 months.
