Mariposa 2014 Red
The Mariposa wines are all crafted in a natural way, preserving the original aromas from the castes and the natural acidity of the grapes of this region. They are intented to be light and fresh and to be consumed while young, although, as wines of the Dão, they also have good aging potential on the bottle. They are modern wines that, at the same time, reflect very well the character of the region.
Integrated protection mode.
Mainly granitic, slender and with rocky outcrops.
Mixed with Mediterranean and Atlantic influences.
The grapes are harvested manually into small boxes of 20kg. The composition of the batch varies accordingly to the production of each caste in the vineyard. After total release of the grapes, they go into a small stainless steel mill, under controlled temperature, where the maceration process occurs for 24 hours, before the fermentation process takes place. The fermentation is slow, under controlled temperatures, with subtle remakes. This wine staged in stainless steel, to preserve all its aromas and natural flavour of the grapes.
Total Acidity: 5.6 (g/L)
Total Sugar: 3.1 (g/L)
