ALENTEJO REGION WINE
A very interesting wine, representative of a relevant Portuguese Wine Region, whose terroir is based on temperate Atlantic-Mediterranean climate, with clay soil, with temperate Atlantic-Mediterranean schist and granite blooms.
In trigonometry, tangent is the ratio (division, proportion) between the opposite and the adjacent sides at one of the sharp angles of a right triangle, but it is not from Mathematics that this Wine is inspired, it is another story.
The vineyard that is the origin of this Alentejo wine is integrated in Herdade Assentes de Baixo.
In the case of the plot that resulted in this blend stands out a particularity, is located in the geographical boundary between two municipalities, namely Cuba and Alvito.
Because the vineyard where the grapes are extracted almost bypass the line dividing the two municipalities, in the heart of the Alentejo plain, it was decided by the winemaker to call the wine TANGENTE (or tangent in English).
This blend brings together three varieties, Syrah, Alicante Bouschet and Aragonez.
Grapes harvested manually in small boxes that allow the whole essence and character of the terroir to be preserved.
Vinified in a stainless steel mill, aged for nine months in French and American oak barrels!
