VINTAGE 2011 PORT

VARIETIES: Touriga Nacional (35%), Touriga Franca (20%), Tinta Roriz (15%) Tinto Cão (5%), Tinta Barroca (5%), Others (20%).

COLOR: Dark purple/black color. 

NOSE: Deep aromas of dark and red fruits, combined with spice notes.

PALATE: Dark fruit flavors, a velvety structure, dark chocolate notes, and fine tannins creating a persistent, refined finish. 

WINEMAKING: The 2011 harvest was close to perfect in terms of weather, which is likely the single most important variable on winemaking. After a long and cold winter, with plenty of rain that helped to create water reserves in the soil, spring was warm followed by a mild start to the summer. A couple of showers in mid August and very early September helped restore the vines. After the last rain, it was dry and perfect for the harvest, which started on September 5th. Totally de-stemmed grapes followed by a slow fermentation with temperature control up to 26ºC degrees. Not filtered. Bottled in April 2013.
