Grape Variety

100% Trincadeira.

Concept

Trincadeira preta (sin. Tinta Amarela) is a local grape varietal, with likely origin in south of Portugal. Out of fashion, unloved, it still represents the 2nd biggest planted area in the region. Thin skinned, fragile, when it rains, it tends to burst and rot, when it is too hot, it tends to raisen. Being very hard to find the right picking time. This “Trincadeira is not that black” was picked at the possible moment, and vinified with minium interventon to show all of its pure potential. The result? A fresh breeze from the past that has been lost, but actually has ben here all the time.

Tasting Notes

Light ruby-grenade colour. Fragile, wet bush aroma, mushroom and spice notes, combining with subtle herbal notes. Fresh in the mouth, very well structured with medium texture.

Climate

Continental/Mediterranean climate. Hot and dry with cold nights.

Production

3 600 bottles of 0,75L released in August 2020.

Vinification

The grapes are selectively hand-picked into small boxes of 40kg, then hand sorted, mushed and moved to tanks without the use of pumps. Minimum intervention vinification.

Ageing

9 months in stainless steel and 3 months in bottle.

Alcohol

14,5% Vol

Storage and Service

Gastronomy

Fresh red, elegant, goes well with stew meat dishes and game dishes, where the freshness of the Trincadeira cuts the grease.
