Profile

Smell

After swirling this wine, richly scented aromas of plum, blackberry, and raspberry waft from the glass, followed by just a touch of black pepper. The scent profile is further elevated with hints of smoke and vanilla.

Taste

This full-bodied blend of Aragonez (another name for Tempranillo), Trincadeira, and Touriga Nacional is soft and velvety. There is an abundance of dense, ripe fruit, such as black cherry, blueberry, plum, and blackberry, along with some flavours of pepper, smoke, vanilla, and dark chocolate. The acidity is nicely balanced alongside the soft tannins and the bold fruit, with a nicely lingering finish.

Pairing

This wine would work great with a paella or a fish stew. It would also pair great with smoked pork sausage in a piri piri sauce.

Aromas and Flavours

Blackberry

A little sweet, a little tart, this black fruit is rather quiet but persistent.

Cherry

Fresh B.C. cherries out of the back of a truck, all eaten before you can get them home!

Blueberry

Eating handfuls of berries straight from the bush, your fingers stained purple for days to come.

Herbs

Your windowsill herb garden gives off a lovely herbal smell every time you walk by.

Pepper

A whiff of a freshly used pepper grinder - spicy and fresh, without the itchy nose.

Description

Quinta da Plansel is a Portuguese winery located about an hour from Lisbon. There are about 75 hectares of vineyards that are part of the DOC of Évora, a region which possesses a Mediterranean climate. There is a large temperature shift each day, thanks to a maritime influence. The cool nights ensure an optimal acidity and a distinct aromatic profile. The area makes most of its wines using their indigenous grapes, mostly as blends, but some single varietals are becoming more popular here as well. The setting in this region is spectacular, where you will find vineyards, olive groves, and cork oaks, while cattle wander through the idyllic peaceful plains.

Dorina Lindemann, with her daughters, Julia and Luisa, are the current generation of a family that has been producing wine since 1828. The daughters are following in their grandfather and mother’s footsteps in the family business.

This wine should be served at 16 C, and can be enjoyed from now until 2024.
