This Wine from the Algarve, Cabrita Native Grapes Negra Mole Red Wine 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.
The grape variety Negra Mole, is a very Portuguese variety, with tradition from the south of Portugal, therefore it is a queen variety of the Algarve Region, and has the curiosity of being the only one in Portugal that can ripen in white grape or grape register ink.
Tasting Notes: Cabrita Native Grapes Negra Mole Red Wine is a disconcerting wine, pale yellow in color, in the nose it feels aroma revealed by the tension of the grape variety and its minerality, in the mouth it is an explosion of freshness and fruit, well softened by the creamyness that the stage in lees gives it.
