ALGARVE REGIONAL WINE
Cabrita Red Wine 2018 is produced in the south of Portugal, in the Algarve region. This region has a very specific climate, in which it is close to the sea, but also under the influence of the mountains (Espinhaço de Cão, Caldeirão and Monchique mountains). The mountains are very important for farming in Algarve, as they protect it from the North winds. So, the climate is hot, dry, with low thermal amplitudes and an average of 3000 hours of sunshine a year.
This wine was produced in a property with 7ha of vines and a family legacy of over 4 decades.
Typical grape varieties in this region range from Crato Branco, Manteúd, Negramole or even Castelão, which have conquered countless connoisseurs, and been granted several international awards. These grape varieties were joined 15 years ago by Touriga Nacional, Trincadeira and Aragonez.
This wine ferments with indigenous yeast at controlled temperatures, before a 18 day cuvaison phase followed by an 18 month stage in new French oak barrels.
