Winemaker Notes

This wine is deep ruby in color, with aromas of wood fruits, white flowers and chocolate. With subtle notes of spice and a nice concentration of smooth tannins, this wine leaves a pleasant and long finish on the palate.

Blend: 50% Aragonez, 25% Touriga Franca, 25% Touriga Nacional

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 92
Serious wood aging has given this concentrated wine power and great aging potential. For now, it is firmly tannic, but rich black fruit tones and juicy acidity are there, waiting to develop.

Herdade of São Miguel aims to guarantee a great level of satisfaction to its consumers, by producing wine with an excellent relationship of quality and price. With the purpose of satisfying all type of consumers, the Herdade of São Miguel has been developing different types of wine throughout the years. All of the types of wines reflect the quality and rigor, values that are promoted in our work. Being a third of Portugal's area and having only one tenth of its population, the Alentejo is best known by its extremely differentiated climate, by its unique and natural beauty and by the purity of its inhabitants.

Projected and built in 2003 in a minimalist style, this winery is located at the middle of the Herdade São Miguel vineyards. It was created to transform 500.000 kilos of grapes annually. All the grapes are hand-crafted to preserve the maximum of the genuineness. Freedom of spirit, vitality, versatility and responsibility are some adjectives that portray and characterize the team's work.

Alentejo

Responsible for a majority of Portugal’s fine wine production—and over half of the world’s cork production—Alentejo represents a major force in Portugal’s wine industry. This southern Portugese region is characterized by stretches of rolling plains and vineyards dotted with majestic cork oaks. Access to land enables the farmers of Alentejo to produce wines in great economies of scale, without compromising quality, compared to those regions to the north. The region of Alentejo indeed covers a third of the country.

Its classified (DOP) wines must come from one of eight subregions, where elevations are a bit higher, air cooler and less fertile soils are perfect for vines. The optimal regions are Portalegre, Borba, Redondo, Reguengos de Monsaraz, Granja-Amareleja, Vidigueira, Evora and Moura. Alentejo is not without the conveniences of modern winemaking as well. Irrigation supplements low rainfall and temperature control in the winery assures high quality wines.

The potential of the area has attracted many producers and its wine production continues to grow. Alentejo’s charming, fruit-forward wines have naturally led to local and global popularity.

White wines tend to be blends of Antão Vaz, Roupeiro and Arinto. However, in growing proportions, the white grapes Verdelho, Alvarinho and Viognier have been enjoying success. But red varieties actually exceed whites in Alentejo. Aragonez, Trincadeira, Alicante Bouschet and Castelão grapes blend well together and are responsible for most of the Alentejo reds.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
