Quinta da Sequeira Reserve Red 2014
The Quinta de Sequeira’s prime location in the Douro Superior is crucial for the superior quality of the grapes. The combination of a schist soil, a very low rainfall and a large thermic range, provides the most intense, rich and concentrated wines. The predominant red grape varieties present in the vineyards are Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela and Tinta Barroca. The white varieties are Malvazia Fina, Gouveio, Rabigato, Viosinho and Códega do Larinho.
Total destemming followed by crushing; cold maceration for 24 hours; fermentation for six days, followed by malolactic fermentation at 16 – 28 ºC. In stainless steel tanks with pumping over and refrigeration system.
Deep red. Very concentrated, with wood notes related with black berry fruits jam. Well balanced with soft tannins resulting in a harmonious, clean and persistent wine.
