Aromatic & Complex
This red is manually harvested then placed into marble tanks which is not only unique but adds an opulence to this complex wine. In conjunction with the marble tanks, this wine ages in half cement vats and half in French oak. Both the marble and the cement add a stoney minerality to the palate where the French oak contributes to the refined notes of earth and red fruit. The notes you will discover on both the nose and palate are, wild mushroom, pomegranate, black cherry, black plum, sweet tobacco and mint.
About the Winery
Torre De Palma
Torre de Palma winery offers a truly unique experience as it’s situated within a boutique hotel at the heart of the Alto Alentejo wine region, more specifically in Monforte, Portalegre. The main aim was to build a traditional winery with its small marbled (marble from the region) wine-presses, where the grapes are trodden and the red ones fermented. One can also find refrigerated cement deposits. Torre de Palma wines respect the terroir in which they have grown and are mostly handcrafted and separated into small lots.
