Tinta Miúda 2004 Red

Tinta Miúda is a local alenquer grape that expressed itself in a very unique and exceptional way at the terroir of Quinta do Pinto. Produced only from old vines, with ageing in French oak barrels for 18 months. It is a variety of exotic profile with much irreverence.

Geology
Clay-limestone soil, originally from the Jurassic period, with clayey and loamy texture. Soft slopes with southern exposure.

Viticulture Method
Integrated Production.

Vinification
Careful vine management to enhance all the fruit potential. Handpicked grapes into 20 Kg cases followed by a exhausted selection of bunches in the cellar. Temperature controlled alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeasts for 14 days in a temperature range of 24 - 28ºC, followed by malolactic fermentation and ageing for 18 months in second year French oak barrels. Ageing in bottle since 2006.
