Vinha Neve Red 2013 DOC Dão

Vinha Neve Red 2013


Winemaker Notes

Complex aroma, with the notes of dark fruits and wild flowers, mineral and spicy. On the palate the wine is textured, with the powerful noble tannins, with well-integrated acidity and a long finish.

Winemaker Carlos Lucas



The harvest occurred in the third week of September. The grapes were harvested by hand, into small boxes of 18kg, according to a careful selection of the best grapes in the vineyard, followed by a second selection on arrival at the winery. The grapes were totally destemmed into a small granite “lagar”, where they macerated for 2 days at low temperature, before starting the alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeasts at a controlled temperature. The alcoholic fermentation lasted about 3 weeks, with a light assembly by foot treading. After the fermentation, the wine was decanted into new French oak barrels, where it rested for 12 months. After bottling, this wine spends a minimum of 6 months in cold cellar, before the release to the market.
