The grapes are at Vicente Faria winery Harvested and selected by hand, transported in small boxes. They use the Temperature controlled alcoholic fermentation with pre-fermentation maceration. The mash is then pressed in a wine press. So the solid grape residues, also called grains or pomace, are separated from the sweet grape juice. A careful procedure is particularly important here so that no seeds are crushed and release their bitter substances into the wine.
The Portuguese Gloria Riserva Douro DOC matures in wooden barrels for 12 months. The high quality standards of the Vicente Faira winery make the Riserva unique and a first-class wine.
It has a scent of intense red fruits and a spicy note of cinnamon on the nose. Due to the long maturation time in wooden barrels, the aromas of blackberries, blueberries and red currants unfold into a fruit explosion on the palate. The wine is dense and spicy with a fine tannin structure and a balanced acidity that is long and lively noticeable in the finish.
Goes well with lamb, poultry and grilled meat.
