PACHECA LAGAR Nº 1 RESERVE | 2019
Pacheca Lagar Nº1 has a deep ruby color. The aroma is very fruity with prominent notes of ripe black fruit, such as blackberries and plums, accompanied by notes of chocolate from the barrel. In the mouth it is very complex with an acidity that gives it freshness, marked round tannins and a long and persistent finish.
Douro DOC, Portugal
Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional
18 months in 2nd and 3rd year French oak barrels
This wine is obtained from grapes of the Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional varieties planted in Quinta da Pacheca and from the vineyards of Vila Nova de Foz-Côa, which are around 40 years old.
After careful selection for their best condition, the grapes were harvested into 25 kg chests and sent to the winery central where they were completely destemmed. Fermentation took place for 9 days in traditional 7-tonne granitic stone tanks with stepping and smooth pumping over for leaching by blanket and extraction of phenolic and aromatic compounds. At the end of alcoholic fermentation, the wine was transferred to 2nd and 3rd year French oak barrels where malolactic fermentation took place and aged for about 18 months.
