Cortes de Cima Amphora

Vintage 2015

Characterized by very favorable growing season conditions and led to one of the best vintages in recent years. Cold and dry winter, warm and dry summer, free of heat waves, dry September.

Vinification

A blend of Aragonez (Tempranillo), Syrah, Touriga Nacional and Trincadeira fermented and matured in raw clay amphorae. 14 months of maturation in amphorae allowed for the natural evaporation and subsequent concentration of the wine held within due to the porous properties of raw clay. This is a wine born from the fusion of minimal interventional ancient techniques and modern winemaking.

Tasting Notes

Ripe red berry fruit aromatics, with a touch of raspberry jam, and some spicy notes. Soft but intense
fruit on the palate, touch earthy and gamey, well structured with tight tannins.

Reviews

thrilling,.. chock-full of flavor. ..irresistible“ - Mark Squires, 232, The Wine Advocate, 31st Aug 2017

the clay has had the effect of giving a dry, dark finesse to the wine as a whole, without any loss of the fruit.” – Julia Harding, jancisrobinson.com
