Duorum Reserva Vinhas Velhas 2012

Profound red colour. Very intense and complex aroma dominated by ripe black fruits, blackberries, cassis, and gooseberry, also showing floral aromas of violet and exotic wood. Aromas of spices result from elevage in the barrels. All these aspects contribute to excellent aromatic complexity that will increase with time. Well balanced acidity with firm and ripe tannins. These characteristics make it a full bodied and powerful wine with a long, persistent finish.

Grape varieties: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Sousão
Region: Douro
Alcohol: 14 % vol.
Total acidity: 5,2 g/l (tartaric acid)

Denomination: DOURO DOC
Soil: Schist
Harvest: By hand to small cases of 15 kg
Vinification: Upon arrival at the winery the grapes originating from 100 year old vines are carefully selected and de-stemmed. Pre-fermentative maceration at low temperature with robotized treading in stainless steel “laggares” (troughs) takes place, following fermentation at controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks. Pumping over and “delestage” processes are then started in order to obtain the greatest extraction possible through a careful selection limited to the chosen constituents followed by a long post-fermentative maceration.
Ageing: In 225 and 300 litres French oak barrels for 18 months, 70 % ages in new oak barrels and 30% in second and third year barrels.
