QUINTA DA LAPA TINTO RESERVA MERLOT

TEJO WINES REGION

If a wine with a bright ruby color, sweet aromas of very ripe red fruit, blackberries, plums, cocoa notes and tobacco leaf is the same, then here is a good example.

Musk-green “Author” wine bottle, select quality natural cork stopper, gold PVC capsule, seal of guarantee of origin from the Tejo region in the back label.

This wine is 100% Merlot.

Fermentation in stainless steel vats with temperature control, 12 months resting in French and American oak halfbarrels.

We are facing a mono-variety wine, with a potential for longevity, given that it has all the conditions to save, in fact it is a good investment for those who like to reserve or save for later consumption, as it can age in the bottle, provided that it is in good condition for a period of at least 8 years.

This wine is obtained in a property located in the Tejo wine region, this region called Tejo, formerly known as Ribatejo, is practiced in an extensive agriculture of vegetables and fruits, rice, olive trees and vineyards that fill the vast Ribatejo plains, visited every day. -day by the Tagus River, being the longest river in the Iberian Peninsula, with its source in Spain and flows into the capital of Portugal in Lisbon, being that it crosses a good part of the country, in particular the plains of Ribatejo.

The vineyards where the merlot grapes that result in this mono-vine are harvested are produced in a place that is over 300 years old and has a history that does not weigh because it lives, so the recommendation is that you open one of these bottles and release the history that exists in each one, and in a glass of wine, on a walk, in an evening, at a party or in a simple moment of sharing I savored this nectar.

Now enjoy the experience and cheers, open this bottle and drop the story.

I love Merlot Wines

I took a chance and added this nectar to my first order where I took the opportunity to visit this store and I was pleasantly surprised, sorry for having put in a little quantity.
