Jardim da Estrela Red 2016 DOC Dão

Jardim da Estrela Red 2016


Winemaker Notes

Well defined aroma, with wild fruits and peppery notes. The palate shows youth, fruity notes with well integrated tannins and a medium and soft finish.

Winemakers Carlos Lucas


The harvest took place in the end of September. The grapes were picked up by hand, into small boxes of 18Kg, according to a careful selection of the best grapes in the vineyard. The grapes were totally destemmed into small stainless steel vats, where they macerated for 24h at low temperature, before starting fermentation. The fermentation lasted about 15 days, with gentle pumping for a good extraction of color and aromas. The wine remained only in stainless steel vats to preserve all the aromas of fresh fruit.

Wine Enthusiast – 88 Points Named after the Estrela mountain range that lies on the east of the Dão, this structured, mineral-driven wine is firm yet packed with juicy red berries and currants that give a fragrant, juicy character. It needs more time, so drink from 2017. — Roger Voss (10/1/2015)
