Grapes Varieties: Ramisco

Ancient and rare grape sort, only grown in this area. Cultivated in the traditional phyloxera-free sandy soils without root stock grafting, located at less than 1 km (0,62 miles) from the Atlantic Coast at an average altitude of 110 m (360 feet).

 

Vinification:

No trellis system. The vines are free, crawling on the sand, with the cordons stretching horizontally. By August, the clusters are propped up with the use of small cane sticks -pontões-. Plants must be shielded from sea wind, which is accomplished through hand-made palisades of dried canes sewn with wicker. Properties are generally small and bound by loose stone walls.

The grapes were harvested in the 1st week of October. Immediate destemming (70%) and crushing. Fermentation in closed stainless steel tanks with temperature control (26-28ºC) and careful pumping over. Aged for three years in exotic wood vats, followed by one more year in small oak barrels. Bottled in September 2013.

 

Tasting Notes:

Light-ruby colour with medium intensity. The unique bouquet shows character of wild cherry in a balsamic cedar-resin backdrop. Clean fruit with an Atlantic character in the palate, reminding pine seed. Earthy dry texture with a mineral acidity. With ageing, the colour changes to an “onion-peel” tawny and the wine
shows its full aromatic complexity.

 

Consumption Suggestion:

Suits well roasted meats (lamb), game, mushrooms and chesses. The bottles should be handled carefully and opened some time before tasting. It is best appreciated at 18ºC.
