- PAIRING HOW TO SERVE IT
Produced in the Cima Corgo subregion, the Tinto Cão grapes were harvested by hand during the last week of August of 2021 and then moved to the winery of Quinta de S. Luiz in small crates to ensure they arrived in perfect health and ripeness. To avoid extracting colour, we lightly pressed the wholes bunches that had been previously selected on the sorting tables. Afterwards, 80% of the lot fermented in stainless-steel vats at a controlled temperature between 10-14ºC, while the remaining 20% fermented in used oak barrels. Following the alcoholic fermentation, the wine aged for six months in stainless steel barrels with weekly bâtonnage.
Salmon pink in colour, this wine exhibits aromas of fresh redcurrant and pomegranate and floral notes. The palate makes a good impression for its texture, silkiness and elegance, with subtle notes of smoke enhancing its complexity. Its freshness lingers throughout the tasting – a delight to the senses. With a fresh and long finish, it invites reflection. An excellent wine to accompany a meal, but also great to have it on its own.
Serve at a temperature between 12 and 14°C. Perfect with seafood dishes (both shellfish and fish), white meat and medium strength cheese.
