3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

Quinta da Vicosa is one of Joao 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 this wine, which is always new and appealing to the consumer. In this wine, the vintner has chosen to blend the international Syrah with the indigenous Trincadeira. 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 and oak half barrels.

Tasting notes
Intense garnet in color, the nose shows aromas of ripe red fruits nicely complemented by notes of vanilla and spice from the extensive wood contact. A beautifully complex wine with velvety smooth tannins, the finish is long and persistent. This wine will age for many years, but is ready to drink now.

Technical notes
Varietal Composition 50% Syrah and 50% Trincadeira

Other text
Ramos draws from his decades of experience to carefully create a range of wines. Depending on the provenance and variety of the grape, Ramos employs temperature-controlled vinification in steel tanks or traditional foot-treading in marble lagares, followed by aging in barrique to add richness of character. For all his wines, he employs advanced quality-control systems that have set the standard in Portugal. Born to a family with a long history of wine production, internationally acclaimed oenologist Joao Portugal Ramos was awarded a degree in agronomy from El Instituto Superior de Agronomia (Higher Institute of Agronomy) in 1977. After receiving a work placement at the National Winegrowing Station at Dois Portos from 1977 to 1978, he embarked on a career as an oenologist. As a consultant, he has played a significant role in the development of some of Portugal”s most notable wines. These successes have won him many awards and accolades throughout his career and brought him national and international acclaim as one of the main figures responsible for the development of Portuguese wines during the last 20 years.

Food pairing
Delightful when paired with roast lamb or duck as well as aged cheeses.
