Cartuxa Vinho de Talha Organic Tinto 2018

Cartuxa Vinho de Talha Organic Tinto 2018 bottle
Tasting Notes: 

A nose of lush raspberry and blackberry, with a note of pine forest and dried herbs. Austure and rustic in the mouth, yet with elegance and delicate nature.  Firm tannins balanced by acidity underlining the wine's juicy texture.

Its name is inspired by the Carthusian monks [Cartuxos] who, since 1598, have practiced a solitary life of prayer at the Cartuxa Monastery in Évora. As a way of reviving one of the traditional ways of producing wine in Adega Cartuxa [Cartuxa Winery], located at Quinta de Valbom, where quality wines have been produced for over two centuries, the Eugénio de Almeida Foundation presents this red wine made in old clay pots.

Wine Making Notes: 

Produced from grapes of the Alicante Bouschet, Trincadeira and Aragonez varieties, planted in Quinta de Valbom, which, after manual harvest, undergo a selection process, also manual, and the best berries are fermented in old clay pots. After the alcoholic fermentation, the wine remains, together with the grapes, in a maceration period. The clay pots are "opened", bled and the wine cleansed, only after November 11th. The wine rests for a few more months in the clay pots, which allows it to acquire a special character, transmitting to the wine unique characteristics that bring us aromatic sensations we have already forgotten.
