The Torre de Palma Wine Hotel has just launched its 2018 white harvests, as well as the big news of the year: its first rosé, which extends the growing portfolio of this excellent Alentejo production.
The Torre de Palma project, which is essentially an ode to wine, is located in the heart of the Alentejo vineyard in Monforte. The vineyards, adjacent to the Torre de Palma Wine Hotel, are influenced by the Serra de São Mamede microclimate and the production is almost entirely made using artisanal methods, resulting in a perfect combination for the creation of unique wines, in perfect harmony with nature.
“We entrusted our winemaker, Duarte de Deus, with the creation of a vineyard with national grape varieties such as Aragonese, Alicante Bouschet, Touriga Nacional and Tinta Miúda (for red) or Antão Vaz, Arinto and Alvarinho (for white). And this is the spirit in which the Torre de Palma wines are born, an exclusive project of artisanal character ”, explains Ana Isabel Rebelo, general manager and owner of the hotel.
New releases today include two whites and a rosé. The white Torre de Palma 2018 is a blend of Arinto, Antão Vaz and Alvarinho, which fermented in French oak barrels and aged six months in barrels.
A crystalline wine from which 12,000 bottles are produced. It has greenish tones, a complex and elegant aroma, with well integrated fruit notes and toast from barrel fermentation.
