Quinta da Bacalhôa Red 2012


Península de Setúbal



Color: Red
Capacity: 750ml | 1500ml
Alcohol: 14.5% Vol.
Winemaking: The grape varieties chosen on the estate, a Cabernet Sauvignon and a Merlot benefit from the natural conditions to allow a slow and balanced maturation.
The primary fermentation takes place at a controlled temperature (25°C), followed by a period of ‘cuvaison´ (skin maceration post-fermentation) of three weeks.

Ageing: 11 months in new French oak casks
Tasting notes: Aromas of red fruits combined with nuances of wood and spices. In the mouth, the red fruit flavours are intensified and combined with smooth tannins; it has a fresh finish, somewhat mineral, elegant and very complex.
Gastronomy: Red meat and game.
Serving Temperature: 16 - 18°C
