Sao Miguel Alentejo Escolha dos Enologos
Full red in color; refined and powerful in scent with an aroma of ripe blackberries, toasted oak and vanilla. The full flavor insert is balanced, rich and aromatic; the finish has mild, soft tannins and a lingering aroma.
Red wine from Alentejo
Alexandre Relvas and his collaborator Nuno Franco, both œnologists, choose each year - independently of each other - what they consider to be the very best barrels of wine from the indigenous grapes Alicante Bouschet, Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional. They then make a special assembly of this selection, with as many preferred characteristics of both winemakers as possible. This impressive red alentejo comes from vineyards on slate-clay soils. These vineyards almost naturally deliver a low yield and therefore concentrated grapes. After picking, the grapes ferment in temperature-controlled open barrels, the so-called lagares. The second lactic acid fermentation and maturation lasts nine months and takes place in 400-litre French oak barrels. The result is a deeply colored, powerful red wine with an impressive aroma of ripe fruit and dosed oak. The wine has structure, but is not heavy or unwieldy and ends with a long, soft finish. A crowd favourite!
