PACHECA GRANDE RESERVA TOURIGA NACIONAL
Producer: Quinta da Pacheca
Appelation: Douro DOC, Portugal
Harvest: 2015

VITICULTURAL YEAR

The 2015 vinicultural year began with a rainy spring after a rigorous winter which was later found to have a major importance in securing soil water reserves. This was the key to the drought and heat conditions that followed dur- ing June and July. In the maturation period during August, the diurnal and nocturnal temperatures were milder which allowed to preserve the acidity of the grapes obtaining balanced must and consequently elegant wines.

VINEYARDS

This wine is exclusively obtained from the grape variety of Touriga Nacional from a 32 years old parcel installed at 140 meters of altitude.

VINIFICATION

After careful selection by their best state, the grapes were harvested for chests of 25 kg and sent to the wine- making center where they were fully de-stemmed. Fermentation occurred during 9 days in the traditional 7-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 to new French oak barrels where malolactic fermentation oc- curred and aged for about 18 months.

TASTING NOTES

Pacheca Touriga Nacional is an elegant wine with good aromatic intensity, notes of bergamot and violet with well-integrated wood. It reveals good structure in the mouth, rounded tannins, freshness, and a long and persis-tent finish.
