Quinta da Pacheca launched a new wine on the market, a Touriga Francesa single-vine, called ‘Grande Reserva Touriga Francesa 2018’.
“This is a wine that is born out of the passion of the Quinta da Pacheca winemaking team, led by Maria Serpa Pimentel, who decided to explore all the capabilities of the Touriga Francesa variety, which many consider to be the great Douro variety”, the company said in a statement.
The wine, on the other hand, presents notes of aging in 300 liter French oak barrels. “In the mouth it is dense, intense, with a significant acidity that gives it freshness, and that foresees a long future”, said Maria Serpa Pimentel, head of oenology at Quinta da Pacheca.
The grapes of this ‘Grande Reserva Touriga Francesa 2018’ come from a 25-year-old vineyard installed at 100 meters above sea level, with the wine aged for 18 months in French oak barrels.
This is a wine with an intense and complex aroma, well combined with the aromas of black fruit, such as blueberry and blackberry, also presenting notes of aging in 300 liter French oak barrels, which gives it an extremely elegant character.
With about 75 hectares of its own vineyards planted in the World Heritage of Humanity, classified by UNESCO in 2001, Quinta da Pacheca has always been focused on the production of quality DOC wines from Douro and Porto and was one of the first in the region to bottle DOC wines under its own brand.
