Tasting Notes

This attractively packaged wine offers aromas of coffee, blackberries, and dark chocolate.  The wine is well-balanced in the mouth, silky and complex, with kirsch, fresh black currant and berry, and hints of black pepper and mocha.  Medium in body and acidity, with fine tannins and a longer finish.  

 

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.
