Quinta das Brôlhas DOC Colheita Red 2010

A wine produced from traditional Douro grape varieties (Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca, Tinta Barroca, Tinto Cão and Sousão) reflecting  the character of the low-altitude Baixo Corgo  sub-region, with its consistent quality year-on-year. A wine with bottle-aging potential, the perfect foil to elaborate dishes.

At their ideal point of maturity, grapes were manually harvested, destemmed and submitted to prolonged fermentation on skins in stainless-steel vats. Following fermentation, the wine was matured in French-oak barrels for a period of 6-8 months. Following its bottling in July 2012, the wine continued to mature in-bottle for a further 7 months before its release in February 2013. 13,000 bottles were produced in total.

A pretty ruby colour with bright reflections, it has an intense aroma, dominated by mature red fruit with notes of oak wood, which maintains its strength over time. In the mouth it stands out for its balance between a velvety feel and an elegant acidity, guaranteeing its suitability as a fine gastronomic accompaniment.
