Castelo do Sulco Reserva Magnum

Colour: Red Vintage:2014 Alcohol Content: 13,5% Technical Sheet: Castelo do Sulco Reserva Magnum

History

Portugal - a land of old, walled towns and magnificent Templar castles where wines are a complement to the range of charms one can find here.
The Lisbon wine region has a long and great wine tradition. Its diversity of microclimates allows the winemaker to create top quality wines, recognized national and internationally.

Winemaker

António Ventura and Vera Moreira

Grapes Varieties

Touriga Nacional, Aragonez & Syrah

Winemaking

The grapes were totally destemmed and the fermentation occurred in stainless steel tanks at 25ºC during 8 days.

Tasting Notes

Intense aromas of red fruit compote, with spicy hints. Soft and round on the palate but full bodied. The brief ageing in oak barrels gave this wine complexity and smoothness.

Food Suggestions

Our Castelo do Sulco red pairs really well with grilled steak or Moroccan lamb.
