Herdade Portocarro Cavalo Maluco 2013 Magnum Red

In Torrão, near Alcácer do Sal, lays Herdade de Portocarro, where José da Mota Capitão creates such unexpected, seductive and fresh wines that, without leaving Setúbal, we feel we are in Tuscany or in Alentejo with a view towards the sea.
 
The estate is surrounded by trees and the vineyards are arranged in a North-South orientation, on top of a south-facing hill, 60 meters above the Rio Sado valley. The days are hot and the nights are cold. The grapes are harvested and selected by hand.

Fermentation in oak vats. Aging for 18 months in French oak barrels.
