Ribeiro Santo Reserve Red 2012, Double Magnum-wooden case pack

It was an ancient property of the local priest, surrounded by a stream where water flows all year round, so it was named "Quinta do Ribeiro Santo", which means "Holly River Estate". The vineyard is planted with the local varieties, such as Touriga Nacional, Alfrocheiro, Tinto Cão and Encruzado, which were planted in poor ground granite, with large rocky outcrops, which overlooks the Serra da Estrela.

Product details

Winemaking

The grapes were picked up by hand, into small boxes of 18Kg, according to a careful selection of the best grapes in the vineyard. The grapes were totally destemmed into small stainless steel “lagares”, where they macerated for 24h at low temperature, before starting the fermentation at controlled temperature. The fermentation lasted about 15 days, with gentle pumping for a good extraction of color and aromas. After the fermentation, the wine was transferred to new French oak barrels, previously used for white wine fermentation.
