Quinta do Boavista ‘Rufia Tinto’ 2017


Vinification: Hand-harvested Jaen, Touriga Nacional and Rufete grapes from organic vineyards on granite schist soils. Destemmed, spontaneous co-fermentation without temperature control in open stainless steel ‘lagar’, aging on lees in old barrels for 9 months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered with a bit of sulphites.

Character: Great example of the purity that can be reached in Portuguese wine with high-altitude natural vineyards and simple vinifications. Rugged and yeasty on the nose, with evolved red and dark berries, tobacco and a touch of balsamic. Lightweight but concentrated on the palate, nice acidic kick on the back-end.
