Tasting Notes

Aromas include mixed berries cocoa and vanilla. The palate is ripe with plums and raspberries supported by integrated tannins and fresh acidity. Medium plus in body with lingering chocolate and baking spice notes. Break out the BBQ, grill some blue cheese burgers, make some chili, or cozy up to a camp fire with some s'mores and this easy going wine.

 

Situated in the municipality of Redondo, Herdade São Miguel encompasses 175 hectares, 35 under vine and 97 planted to cork oak trees. The estate was acquired by winemaker Alexandre Relvas in 1997, who dedicates his efforts to the breeding and conservation of local species, including Merino sheep.  The current flock includes about 400 sheep that keep bugs and weeds from overtaking the vineyards.
