Tasting Note

Presents itself with a deep red color and very concentrated. Notes of red fruits combined with nuances of coffee, mocha, vanilla and dry fruits. Fully structured, complex, fresh, elegant and persistent.

The Quinta da Bacalhôa is located in the Azeitão slopes facing Northwest, the ideal terrain for the production of excellent wines. This is red calcareous and well drained region, with mild climate due to the strong Atlantic influence. The chosen grape varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot, benefit from natural conditions for a slow maturation and balanced acidity. In 2009 the perfect conditions for ripening of the grapes occurred and the harvest presented with small black berries and, good concentration of phenolic ripeness and natural acidity. The basic wine fermented under controlled temperature (25 °C), followed by a period of 1 week cuvaison (postmaceration fermentation). Finally, after separation of the solid parts, the wine matured for 18 months in new 225 liter French oak Allier. After a careful selection of the best wines produced, made from barrel to barrel, the final batch of Palácio da Bacalhôa 2014 is 60,5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36,2% Merlot and 3,3% Petit Verdot. Its bottling took place in May of 2016 and, already in bottle, it staged in the cellars of Quinta da Bacalhôa until its commercialization.
