Quinta dos Roques Reserva

Quinta dos Roques is a 3rd generation family owned winery in the Dão Region of Portugal working only with traditional Portuguese grape varieties.

The Reserva Rouge is a blend of Touriga Nacional, Jaen, Alfrocheiro, Tinta Roriz, Tino Cao, Rufete and other native Portuguese grapes.  This wine is a single vineyard wine but also a field blend.  All grapes are from the Peach Tree Vineyard where all varietals are planted together.

The wine was aged in 225L French barrels for 12 months before bottling. The wine was subjected to a light filtration through cellulose cartridges to preserve the integrity of the wine.

Brilliant deep dart colour, with an intense fruit bouquet reminiscent of wild black currants and pine leaves with vanilla and chocolate notes provided from the oak. On the palate, it is very generous with the astringence characteristic of its youth, fortelling a remarkable ageing. Great balance between alcohol, acidity, tannins, and body.  It will improve through bottle ageing over the next few years.
