The Casal das Freiras Colheita is a blend of the typical indigenous Portuguese grapes the Aragonês, Castelão, Touriga Nacional with a little Cabernet Sauvignon. As with all wines from Casal Das Freiras, the grapes are picked by hand. The grapes are completely destemmed and gently crushed after which they ferment for a long period in stainless steel tanks with an extended period of maceration in concrete at a controlled temperature with frequent immersion of the must to obtain maximum extraction.

Also with this Colheita Tinto, 50% of the wine remains in stainless steel and 50% remains in oak barrels for a period of 6 months before it is bottled. At Casal das Freiras they certainly want to give the Touriga and Aragones plenty of time to mature properly, so the wine remains in the bottle for at least 6 months before it is released.

The Colheito from Casal das Freiras has a lively fresh ruby red color. Fresh aromas of red fruit and vegetable notes and very light tobacco on the nose. On the palate, the wine is medium bodied and elegant in taste with firm tannins and balanced acidity. In our opinion, this is an ideal wine for on the terrace (just cool it slightly as they do in Portugal), with the BBQ, spare ribs or a well-made hamburger on the Green Egg or delicious as a standalone glass with good company. The Colheito Tinto is one of those wines with a very good price/quality ratio that you have to pay double for in France or Italy, so the motto is definitely to try the Portuguese wines before prices rise here too, as we are currently seeing. in Spain.

Quinta Casal das Freiras is located in the Tejo northeast of Lisbon, in the heart of Portugal. The Tejo region is very fertile, partly due to 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.
