Alandra Red 2021
Young and vibrant fruit with aromas of forest fruits. Elegant, with fine tannins and nice texture.
Sourced from select vineyards around Portugal to deliver a consistent blend.
The 2021 agricultural year was a rainy year. During the vegetative rest period (Autumn – Winter) precipitation values were higher than the average of the last 22 years, with temperatures remaining mild. These precipitation values led to the fact that, at the beginning of the vegetative cycle (Spring), practically all the soils had their water reserves completely re-established. The budburst occurred earlier, and the higher temperatures observed during the spring accelerated the vegetative development until flowering. In summer, milder temperatures contributed to a regular development of the vegetative cycle, allowing maturation to take place in a regular and balanced manner.
Individual grape varieties were processed and fermented separately and then blended. The resulting wine is rested in tanks for few months before bottling.
