PRODUCT OVERVIEW/REVIEW:
The Setúbal Peninsula is located just south of Lisbon and borders the larger Tejo region. Its soils, made of clay and limestone, as well as its geographical location, make it ideal for grape cultivation. Situated between the Sado and Tejo rivers and on the Atlantic coast, it has a Mediterranean climate characterized by hot, dry summers and mild winters. The cooling breezes coming off the ocean and rivers help to create wide diurnal temperature variations which bring forth grapes that balance ripe fruit with vibrant acidity.

Under the guidance of Domingos Soares Franco - the first Portuguese winemaker to graduate from the recognized UC Davis in California - a team of hand-picked winemakers are responsible for undertaking a wide range of research, studies, experiments, and innovation that make José Maria da Fonseca a pioneer in much of what is done in terms of enology in Portugal and in the world. This is a job that starts in the vineyard, covers the entire production process, and ends in the bottled wine made available to the consumer. (winery notes)

Today's wine is a blend of native varietals Castelão and Trincadeira. Full-bodied and lushly textured, it abounds with aromas and flavors of crushed blackberries, black raspberries, plums, and black cherries with accents of sweet baking spices. Plush and silky on the mid-palate, it finishes long, with firm yet plaint tannins and bright acidity. It is incredibly tasty from start to finish!
