2013 Quinta de Foz de Arouce Baga Portugal
Winemaker Notes: Foz de Arouce Tinto is sourced from the schistous alluvial vineyard of Quinta de Foz de Arouce, which has been in the family of Count João Fillipe Osorio since the twelfth century. The wine, which is 85% Baga and 15% Touriga Nacional, is fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged in French oak for eight months.
Temperature-controlled fermentation of fully de-stemmed bunches in stainless steel tanks, following a long maceration.
Deep red in color, this wine has excellent aromatic concentration, emanating notes of red fruits and resin. Well-balanced with soft tannins and a persistent finish.
Drink with roasted veal, game, red meats, and aged cheeses.
Wine Enthusiast - "Wood aging gives this ripe blend of Baga and Touriga Nacional its richness and density. It's full of black fruit, toast and a touch of pepper. With ripe tannins and crisp acidity, it can easily age another year. Drink from 2018. "
