    Reserve Tinta Roriz

    We find this variety incredibly versatile as we use it in our sparkling red, rosé, a variety of red table wine styles and fortified wine. For this rich and flavoursome table wine, we reserved the best rows and picked mid-season. A longer ferment of 7 days ensured optimal palate weight and only French oak puncheons were chosen for maturation. Aromas of rosemary and sage combine with a palate of plums and blackberries.

    Size 750ml

    Deep, dark garnet in colour, appealing aromas of rosemary, sage and black cherry lead onto a savoury palate. Notes of plums, wild brambles and persistent tannins are balanced by a refreshing acidity, firm structure and lingering finish.

    Rich and flavoursome parcels of Tinta Roriz were harvested mid season. Once crushed and moved to an open top fermenter, concentrated extraction added complexity and a longer ferment of 7 days ensured optimal palate weight. Only French oak puncheons were used as the bigger size imparts less obvious oak. One and two year old (as opposed to new oak) was also chosen for this reason to let the palate stay fresh and balanced.
