Clavis Aurea Reserva

Touriga Nacional | Touriga Franca | Cabernet Sauvignon

2018

Brilliant deep garnet colour in appearance, it presents aromatic hints of red ripe fruit, jelly, black plums and cocoa, all well integrated with a french oak undertone. On the palate is powerful and velvety with an intense and persistent finish.

Best enjoyed with red meat or strong matured cheese.

16º C (62ºF)

The grapes in this wine come from 30 year old vines with low yields, harvested together on a specific day (field blend) pinned down by the winemaker as the ideal timing for combining the different maturations of each grape variety. Alcoholic fermentation lasted seven days and the must was kept in extended maceration for one month – Cuvaison - until the end of the malolactic fermentation. Once the vinification period was completed, the wine was aged in new French and American (80%/20%) 225 litres oak barrels for a 12 months period.
