    Pormenor Red 2015

    Vinification

    Pormenor Red 2014, was produced with a blend of typical grapes from Douro Region. Vines over 500m altitude planted in Soutelo do Douro – Cima Corgo, with more than 60 years old. 2015 was a vintage with high temperatures e low humidity that allowed a good and balanced maturation of the grapes picked in beginning of September. This Pormenor 2015 pretends to be a fresh and elegant wine, with contained aromas and a medium length but persistent finish. Not a powerful wine but elegant. Fermentation and maceration for 25 days in stainless steel vats. Aged in used French oak barrels, 228L for 18 months until bottling.

    Grapes

    Typical grapes from Douro mainly, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela and Rufete.

    Tasting notes

    Violet in color, on the nose reveals discreet in the beginning, with predominant freshness, green, mineral and light wet stone. On the palate is slightly exuberant, predominantly with a strong minerality. Elegant and not very lush. In continuous growing, this wine becomes light with predominant fresh notes, light red fruit, and a small touch of wet stone. The aging on the barrels is very discreet and well integrated with medium- long finish. For immediate consumption despite its ageing potential and predictable good evolution in the bottle.

    It showed fresh red currant, cherry and plum fruit with a very subtle hint of florality.
