Textura 'Pretexto' Red Blend

Pretexto is a portuguese red wine produced with our own grapes from different vineyards in Dão’s region. In 2020, these grapes came 50% from Penalva do Castelo (Jaen, Alfrocheiro and Tinta Roriz) from vines at 550-620 meters above sea level in granite and clay soils, and 50% from Vila Nova de Tazem (Jaen and Touriga Nacional) from vines on 100% granite soils and at 480-550 meters of altitude. All these vineyard plots are currently being converted for organic certification. Pretexto red 2020 was fermented in stainless steel tanks followed by 30-day cuvaison. The varieties are usually separately fermented as they have different moments of ripeness. The final blend was aged in French oak vats of 5000 L and barrels for 11 months. Naturally stabilized.
