Description

Profile: Earth, slate, underbrush. This is mostly red fruit driven by its acidity and rusticity. Tart blackberry and herbaceous notes on the nose turn to a more tannic, and more tart raspberry profile on the palate.

Grape Growing: Castelão is quite malleable, the grape likes sand as much as it likes our limestone soils, a truly vigorous variety that can succeed in many types of settings. Trincadeira – one of the strangest and most difficult varieties ever – big cluster, low ratio (cluster/vine), keeps its’ metabolism under drought and very hot climate. It has high sugar, low tannin, low color, high acidity – it has some kind of yellowish leaf, (that’s why in Portugal we also call it Tinta Amarela- Red/Yellow). Finally, Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo) is sensitive to mildew, very vigorous variety, lower acidity, high on tannins!

Winemaking: Minimal approach, using native yeasts. No new oak, all aged in stainless steel.

More About the Wine: It’s Alveirão inside the bottle. EVG – is not a medical exam, instead it stands for Encostas do Vale Godinho, the regional appellation for this wine.
