Cabrita Red Wine 2018


Cabrita Red Wine 2018


This Regional Wine from the Algarve, Cabrita Red Wine 2018 is produced in the south of Portugal, in the Algarve region. We are facing a region with a very specific climate, in which it is close to the sea, but it also suffers the influence of the mountain (Espinhaço de Cão, Caldeirão and Monchique mountains). The mountains are very important in Algarve farming, as they protect the exploitation from the winds coming from the north. In this way, the climate is hot, dry, with reduced thermal amplitudes and an average of 3000 hours of sunshine per year.

A wine produced on a property where a family legacy started four decades ago, currently having close to 7 hectares of vineyard.

Typical grape varieties reign on these sides, between Crato Branco, Manteúd, Negramole or even Castelão, and with this style it has conquered countless connoisseurs, including several international awards. These grape varieties were joined 15 years ago by Touriga Nacional, Trincadeira and Aragonez.

Manual harvest to small 20kg boxes. The wine ferments with indegenous yeast at controlled temperatures, before a 18 day cuvaison phase folllowed by an 18 month stage in new French oak barrels.
