The Accolades: A Wine Worth Its Weight in Gold
Let's start with the bragging rights. This wine has been showered with accolades, including a Gold Medal at the Paris Wine Cup 2021 and impressive scores from USA Wine Ratings and Sam Kim's Wine Orbit. It's like the wine world's way of saying, "You've got to try this!"
The Look: A Ruby Spectacle
Pour a glass, and you'll be greeted by a bright ruby color that's as intense as a Portuguese sunset. It's a visual treat that sets the stage for what's to come.
The Aroma: A Symphony of Scents
Inhale deeply, and you'll find an intoxicating blend of wild berries and elegant florals. It's like a walk through a Portuguese meadow, where every step reveals a new aromatic delight.
The Craft: A Blend of Excellence
Made from a delicious blend of Trincadeira, Aragonez, Alicante Bouschet, and Castelão grapes, this wine is a true representation of its terroir. The granitic, schist, and clay-limestone soils add complexity, while fermentation in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature of 24ºC ensures a balanced profile.
The Taste: A Velvety Dream
Take a sip, and you'll find a wine that's round, velvety, and incredibly well-balanced. The tannins are polished to perfection, and the finish? Oh, it lingers, leaving you with a spicy, juicy aftertaste that's simply irresistible.
Food Pairing: A Culinary Star
This wine is a versatile food companion. Imagine it with a plate of grilled meats or a hearty pasta dish. It's the kind of wine that makes every meal a celebration.
So, are you ready to uncork this award-winning gem? Here's to the joy of discovery, the freedom to trust your own palate, and the sheer pleasure of savoring a wine that's truly in a league of its own. Saúde!
