Description

The Vinha Maria range from Quinta de Cabriz are created to have a fresh, modern and juicy style. Their Reserva Red has a bold extra layer of complexity. Touriga Nacional, Aragonez and Alfrocheiro grapes from the Dao region of Portugal go through long skin maceration. before spending 6 months in barrels and 2 months minimum in bottle before release.

The results is a wine of deep claret appearance with a nose of distinct intensity; predominantly dark fruit confit, balsamic notes, hints of caramelised onion and beetroot. The wonderful notes on the palate come from ageing in high quality barrels. Fruity, smooth and elegant with balsamic and warm spice notes coming together in a harmonious style. Try with game or steak pies, warm spice stews, soft cheeses, or even an indulgent dark chocolate tart.
