Richly-Structured Red: Blending the Modern and Traditional in Alentejo, Portugal
2017 J. Portugal Ramos “Quinta da Viçosa”
Quinta da Viçosa is one of João Portugal Ramos’ biggest vineyards, with a total of 100 acres located near Estremoz. In this vineyard different grape varieties have been planted every year, with the winery choosing to plant one Portuguese variety and one foreign variety to produce a unique traditional and modern blend.
Here, the international Syrah is married with the indigenous Aragonez. Part of the harvest is foot-trodden in marble troughs, known as lagares, and the remainder is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. The wine is then aged for 12 months in new French oak half-barrels.
