Tasting note São Miguel Amphora Tinto
Portuguese red wine with an aroma of ripe blackberries and berries. The taste is full, aromatic and creamy. Great with lamb or beef dishes, but also delicious after meals with a mild cheese.
Alexandre Relvas, who has been trained in Bordeaux, turns native Portuguese grapes into beautiful, pure wines. Usually with modern techniques that ensure beautiful fruit expression. But in the case of the Art.Terra, he goes back to the age-old, Roman use of amphora jars. The stone jugs replace oak casks and stainless steel tanks and give a different style of wine, also due to the use of wild yeast and the maturing of 3 months on the worked-out yeast cells. The fermentation is very slow and the grape skins stay in contact with the juice for an extremely long time (60 days). That is of course only possible with a super healthy and ripe harvest. A very special, full-bodied red wine from aragonez, moreto and trincadeira grapes, planted on slate soil.
