BEYRA - Red Wine
Producer Notes 2015
Tinta Roriz/Tempranillo (75%) and Touriga Nacional (25%).
Grapes come from vineyards planted in the plateau area of Beira Interior wine region, at an average altitude of 700 meters, growing in granitic and schist soils with quartz veins. The vineyards are all of native varieties that are perfectly adapted to environmental and climatic characteristics created by the altitude.
Hand picked grapes, reception with full destemming, followed by crushing and cooling. Fermentation between 22/26 ºC during 7 days with smooth maceration.
Aged 1 year in stainless steel vats until bottling.
Fruity aroma with very elegant and discreet minerality. Berries and spices, fresh, with a fruity lasting finish. The soul of this wine lies in the unique combination of the Síria and Fonte Cal native grape varieties, from old vines planted in granite and schist soils with quartz veins, in the Douro River’s hydrographical basin, at an average altitude of 700 metres above sea level.
Enjoy with lamb dishes, appetisers, cheeses, pastas and Mediterranean cuisine.
