2019 Classic Red
Two grapes from different regions, Alfrocheiro & Touriga Nacional, ferment separately in barrels for 6 months before being blended and stored for another 7 months. The producer makes a point to say that the wine defines their style and wants in a benchmark red. Vinhos Aparte only made the 2019 vintage to fill 850 bottles, so the wine is rare! The label changes each year to support local artists.
The wine tastes of fresh red fruits and has distinctly soft tannins and an endearing finish due to its extended ageing. Balanced and difficult to put your finger on, but it will keep you coming back for more!
