The Reserva is the top model of Casal das Freiras and is only made in the good years and every year the Tejo Appellation must inspect the wine before it can be labeled Reserva. Unlike other countries (and regions), in Tejo each vintage is inspected again and it is assessed whether the protected title Reserva is awarded for a vintage.

The Casal das Freiras is a blend of the typical Portuguese Tejo grapes, Tempranillo (Aragonez), Trincadeira, supplemented with Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes are completely hand-picked with a first selection in the vineyard. The grapes are completely destemmed and lightly crushed. The wine ferments in Algerian Amphoras followed by an extended period of maceration to obtain perfect color, structure and tannins at a controlled temperature with frequent mixing of the must. The wine then matures partly in French oak barrels and in Amphoras and is also bottle-aged for 6 months

The result is a complex and elegant wine with an intense garnet red color. The wine is very harmonious and elegant with a silky mouth structure and refined tannins. Beautiful notes of herbs, a little cedar wood and ripe red fruit. It ends with a long and seductive aftertaste. This is a good example of what people in Portugal are capable of, because for this type of quality wine you are guaranteed to pay double if this had been a French or Italian wine. Elegance with a capital E.

Quinta Casal das Freiras is located in the Tejo northeast of Lisbon, in the heart of Portugal. The Tejo region is very fertile, partly because of its location on the river. The area is best known for its vineyards, olive trees, forests, the famous Lusitano horses and bullfighting. The area is beautiful and authentic with a varied landscape and beautiful historic towns such as Tomar, Constancia and Santarém and Golega.

With a focus on quality and balance, Tejo wines have been on the rise for several years. Quality and affordability still go hand in hand here. Casal das Freiras is one of the top wine companies in the Tejo region and if you go to the better restaurants here, it is very likely that you will encounter Casal das Freiras wines on the wine list.
