Product Description

 

The Quinta do Quetzal Reserva red is made from grapes grown in one of the most favourable vineyards on the Quinta do Quetzal estate, situated at its highest point - the Pedras vineyard. The grapes with greatest winemaking potential are pressed by hand, and then undergo a rigorous selection process in which the best bunches are chosen when entering the Winery.  Later, the musts are fermented in French oak barrels for 8 to 10 days, after which the wine is left to mature for 12 months in new French oak barrels, and a further 8 months in bottles before being released to the market.

This wine is characterised by an intense aroma, marked by black fruits with a creamy toasted oak taste. It is delicate on the palate, with silky tannins perfectly mixed with a woody aroma, coming together to create a long, persistent taste. Its structure makes it the perfect accompaniment for slow-cooked meat or fish dishes.
