Menin Douro’s New Legacy Reserve Red
Careful selection of grapes on a sorting mat, followed by total destemming, crushing and transport by gravity to stainless steel fermentation tanks. Pre-fermentative maceration at low temperature for 48 hours, followed by alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperatures between 25-27ºC. In view of the high qualitative potential demonstrated, an additional period of skin maceration was followed, enhancing the structure, depth and complexity of the wine, after which it was transferred to 225l oak barrels. Aged for 18 months in 90% French and 10% American oak barrels. Menin Douro’s New Legacy Reserva is a wine that has an intense ruby color, very fine aromas of sour cherry, cassis and dark chocolate, where at the same time it manifests balsamic and cherry notes, nutmeg and peppermint. It reveals a well-structured mouth, but full of harmony and freshness, with a long and persistent aftertaste.
