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 30ºC in the first 2/3, and lowering down to 20ºC 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 French of Allier oak barrels of 225 Lt, for 5 months. Ageing in bottle a minimum 5 months after bottling.
Superb fine aromas, full body and excellent concentration. Although strongly structured and complex the palate is deliciously smooth and ripe. Flavours of plum, cassis and dried fruits are seasoned with subtle spice notes from oak ageing. The finish is dry and extremely persistent.
Excellent by itself or with any full flavoured dish.
