Alfrocheiro 2020 Red

In timely fashion, Patrícia Santos, a talented oenologist, disciple of Anselmo Mendes and creator of critical acclaimed wines, launched a personal project entitled Rosa da Mata: a homage to her Grandmother. A tremendous start with an abundance of character, as expected from from the Dão Region.
The grapes are harvested manually in 20 kg boxes, and the Alfrocheiro is harvested at dawn, so that the grape remains intact and free from oxidation, without tearing the film until it is crushed in the cellar. These grapes are fermented in a mill, without temperature control and without mechanical treatments, reassembly during tanning is done by wooden monkeys, in order to meet the past, thus keeping the varietal character of the Caste.

Icon nose 176020a5140d2499a7f0e61d28ba9873d09e3af9dca561aeb6a91b357f650e5b Nose: The aroma of flowering and the scent of forests in autumn, moss and pine needles, also has a touch of grapes that reminds us of the harvest and wild fruits.
Icon mouth fe9befcc324311cf7cf9e740b28462659874ebbdc4882ef64971fe9b95382c5e Mouth: It is not a simple wine, it has the rusticity that is educated with elegance, it is confusing, but at the same time interesting, with perfect acidity.
Goes well with: Strong meat dishes and also oily fish, it also goes with itself, just for the pleasure it gives to be drunk, or even with snacks in summer, drunk at lower temperatures (16ºC).
Tasting Notes: Deep down, he has a somewhat bipolar personality, of opposites that come together in a perfect and long end.
