Chaminé Tinto

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 2018

Cold, dry winter followed by a cool, humid spring finally interrupted by a short-lived heat wave in August, which kick-started the late summer. Harvest was consequently later than usual, and short in order to preserve the natural freshness that highlights the year.

Vinification

The grapes were grown on the ancient clay over limestone soils surrounding the estate near Vidigueira. Each parcel was harvested separately according to ripeness. The fruit was destemmed and gently crushed, following fermentation under temperature control for 2 weeks in stainless steel tanks, with gentle punchdowns, pumpovers and delestage. Aged in tank on fine lees. The wine was blended and bottled at the estate on May 2019.

Tasting Notes
