Vinha da Malhada Reserva 2007 (Double Magnum 3L)
Andre is always interested in experimenting with new and old methods. He is the 5th generation of winemakers at Quinta do Montalto, the farm has 15Ha of Vineyards grown with organic certification since 1997 in Clay and Chalk soils under the Lisbon DOC Encostas D’Aire.
He uses ancient methods that create DOC Medieval Ourem, but also made new Portuguese Amphoras and uses the most modern low intervention techniques for his traditional range.
“Perfumed, with a ripe, vinous, complex nose, it reveals dried fig, black currant and cherry jam, violets, cured meat and chalk notes, which follow through on the palate. Chalky tannins and fresh, lively acidity make for super persistence. Fresh and lingering. Really enjoyable.”
