José Neiva Correia
Quinta de Porto Franco Single Estate
Classic fermentation method with destemming and pre fermentative skin contact followed of the application of dry yeasts. Fermentation up to 30º C in the first 2/3, and lowering down to 20º C during the last 1/3. During the whole fermentative process, pumping over 2 times per day, using each time half of the volume contained in the vat. After the alcoholic fermentation, the cap is plunged for 30 days, and during that period, extraction of the gentle tannins is conducted, along with the malolactic fermentation and the natural stabilization of the wine.
Wine is aged in American, French of Allier and Portuguese oak barrels of 225 Lt for 6 months. Ageing in bottle a minimum 5 months after bottling.
A wine of intense aromas and flavours. The palate is superbly balanced with youthful, rich fruit and fines tannins. Soft yet spicy cassis fruit has been seasoned with cedar notes from subtle oak ageing. The finish is long, tasty and extremely persistent.
Excellent by itself or with any full flavoured dishes.
