Quinta da Ferradosa 2015 Red

Grape Origins
The Grapes are chosen from a vineyard planted in 1998. Only Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz grape varieties were planted. Quinta da Ferradosa only uses 10% of its grape production, selling the rest. This gives us the opportunity to choose bunch by bunch, row by row, which grapes we would like for the best quality wine. In 2015 we chose 50% Touriga Nacional and 50% Touriga Franca.

Vinification
All wine was vinified at Quinta da Ferradosa winery. All grapes were first foot-trodden in traditional granite lagars before fermenting in stainless steel tanks (5000 kgs). We then rack the resulting wines in new Allier French oak 225 liter casks from various coopers (Taransaud, Seguin Moreau, Nadalié and François Fréres), where they go through malolactic fermentation. All wines are then carefully aged for 15 months in barriques (75% new and 25% one year old French oak), keeping all different fermentations completely separated until the final blending takes place, just about one month before the bottling of the wines.
