Chaminé

Juicy, deliciously ready to drink, a fun wine at a great value. Bottled early. No oak. Mainly Aragonez and Syrah, blended with other Portuguese varieties.

Vintage

Winter rainfall was plentiful, followed by an excellent summer growing season , mild for Alentejan standards. An early harvest with a rapid end, due to the early arrival of September rains.  Our grapes are grown sustainably in our own vineyards.

Vinification

Well ripened fruit. Fermented without stems under controlled temperature, with frequent delestage. Stored in stainless steel tanks before early bottling, unfined and filtered. No barrel aging.

Reviews

There are plenty of chocolate overtones to this spicy red, which features flavors of dark plum, boysenberry and dried blackberry. Shows hints of brown sugar midpalate, with a finish that is open-textured, accented by smoky notes. – KM – Wine Spectator

Fresh and lively, but light in body, it is a classic style for a pure, fruity and tasty red. It’s a perfect summer red. it is rather terrific. – Mark Squires eRobertParker.com
