Quinta da Boavista Vinha do Uja Red (Douro)
Grapes hand selected and picked. Careful, total de-stemming and gentle pressing. Grapes are fermented in large, 500-litre French oak barrels and, after a period of maceration, transferred to 225-litre barrels, also made of French oak, for 16 months of ageing. The wine is stored for at least one year before being released to the market.

Cherry red colour.
In the palate it shows freshness, elegance and still some hint of tannins. Vibrant texture. Very long finish.
Pairs well with red meat dishes, baked salagne, tapas, as well as traditional mediterranean courses and cheeses.
Still relatively closed needs time: mineral, red fruit, extremely fine and elegant.
