Carrís Red Vintage
Originating from vineyards planted approximately 25 years ago, the grapes that give this wine its flavour are carefully selected in a manual harvest. After they have been stalked and crushed, the pre-fermentative maceration process continues for 24 hours at 30°C (86°F), maximizing the colour and aroma of the grapes. Yeast is specially selected for the alcoholic fermentation and used at a controlled temperature between 22°C - 24°C (71.6°F – 75.2°F) for at least 10 days.
The result is a wine with aged tones, whose tertiary elegant aromas stand out and add sophistication to the blend. Hints of vanilla, coffee, and a touch of spices come together in a balanced mix with a fruity aftertaste dominated by a bouquet of berries, like currant. Lighter than others, this wine is aromatic, fruity, with a persistent taste and very pleasant finish.
