Quinta do Judeu’s flagship red is made from fully fifteen different varieties, from vineyards over 60 years old. Grapes were trodden by bare foot, before fermentation and maturation for 12 months in French oak barrels.
A muscular, structured wine with a bouquet of crushed violets, coffee and black fruits. The palate is intense and complex, with lively acidity and assertive tannins balancing juicy notes of bitter chocolate, grilled meat and leather. A lengthy finish frames the wine perfectly.
Decant for a few hours and enjoy with t-bone steak.
"Savoury, spicy notes on the nose with some chocolate and vanilla, as well as some subtle balsamic notes. Perfumed, floral and taut. The palate shows sweet raspberry, red cherry and plum fruit with a keen, savoury, spicy edge and some grippy structre."
