Tapada de Coelheiros Red 2013


Originating from dry-farmed vineyards with granitic soils of low fertility, oriented from northwest to southwest at an altitude of 300 meters, the Cellar Release – Tapada de Coelheiros 2013 has evolved beautifully after 11 years from the harvest date, and 7 years since its market availability. Today, it is a wine of remarkable elegance, characterized by its silky texture and persistent finish, showcasing a fine balance between freshness and complexity. This balance is enriched by tertiary notes of tobacco, leather, and moss, harmonizing seamlessly with a backdrop of ripe black fruit.

The grapes were hand-harvested and immediately destemmed. Alcoholic
fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks with controlled temperatures
ranging from 24 to 26°C. After the completion of fermentation, the wine
underwent a post-fermentation maceration period of 5 days. Malolactic
fermentation occurred naturally in the tank. Subsequently, the wine was
transferred to 225-liter barrels, where it aged for 18 months.
