    Winemaker Notes

    The color is deep with light brick-red highlights. A very aromatic nose which opens out into notes of black candied cherries. It is ripe, soft, fruity and juicy in the mouth. A balanced wine with reasonable structure and good length. This fully ripe wine is delicious and can be drunk immediately.

    Quinta do Carmo, Portugal
    Image of winery
    Almost 200 km east of Lisbon and less than 40 km from Spain, Quinta do Carmo is situated in the heart of the Iberian Peninsula, in the beautiful Portuguese region of Alentejo. This ancient estate had belonged to the Portuguese royal family and greatly benefited from the help of King Don Joao IV, who made substantial improvements more than 200 years ago. For many generations the Bastos family has owned the Quinta and has contributed a great deal to its expansion.

    Today, Julio Bastos continues its fine tradition of winemaking and is further developing the quality of its wines. That is why, with the same idea in mind, the Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) have decided to actively participate in this enterprise by acquiring 50% of this wine-growing property in 1992. If the wines of Quinta do Carmo are already extremely well-known in their country of origin, the Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) have paved the way for them to reach an international market.

    Portugal

    Best known for flavorful fortified wines but also producing excellent dry wines, Portugal is unique in that it relies almost exclusively on its many indigenous grape varieties. Bordering Spain to the west on the Iberian Peninsula, this is a land where tradition reigns supreme, perhaps due in part to its relative geographical and, for much of the 20th century, political isolation. Portugal is a long and narrow country, which makes for considerable diversity in climate and wine styles, with milder weather in the north and significantly more rainfall near the coast. With the exception of Port, most Portuguese wines have struggled to garner attention in the international marketplace, perhaps due to the unfamiliar and difficult to pronounce nature of most of its grape varieties and terminology, which means that there are many excellent values to be discovered here by the adventurous consumer. The country is perhaps better known for being the world’s leader in cork production than for its wine.

    Port, made in the Douro Valley, is the fortified wine for which Portugal is most famous. The same region also produces full-bodied dry wines made from the same set of grape varieties, which include Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz (Spain’s Tempranillo). The nation’s other important fortified wine, Madeira, is produced on the eponymous island off the North African coast. Other dry wines of the mainland include the tart, slightly effervescent Vinho Verde of the north, the bright, elegant reds and whites of the Dão, and the bold, jammy reds of the Alentejo.

    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 create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. 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.
