Crushed & Cured

Adega de Redondo, Porta da Ravessa Tinto Reserva, IGP Alentejo, Portugal, 2020


Deep, rich bramble and intense blackberry characters, wrapped in soft notes of spice and tobacco, provide a complex and welcome aroma on the nose. Complex and full bodied, with damson and cassis on the palate, supple tannins and a long, generous finish.

A generous blend of indigenous Touriga Nacional and Alicante Bouschet, with Syrah grapes, from vines planted on mainly granitic soils, with small pockets of schist and clay-limestones within the Vinho Regional Alentejano. Controlled fermentation in stainless steel vats at 24ºC, followed by 6 months ageing in a combination of 300l and 700l French oak barrels.
