Chamine Cortes de Cima Alentejo 2010
The name Chaminé originates from one of the vineyard plots - Chaminé de Giao, where originally the grapes used in the wine were grown.This is Cortes de Cimas most popular wine, boasting a consistent track record, which has attracted many fans both in Portugal and abroad. A juicy, ripe, easy drinking, lighter bodied style of wine, which also happens to be lower in alcohol. Chaminé is bottled early, usually within 6 months of harvest time and without any oak ageing. Best drunk young, but will improve with short term cellaring. Mainly Aragonez and Syrah, blended with other Portuguese varieties.
We are a family owned and run vineyard and winery located in Alentejo, Southern Portugal. We strive to capture the abundant Alentejan sunshine in the vineyard, where we start making our wines. Our work is finished off in the winery, where the grapes are carefully handled to preserve the concentrated color, aroma and fruit flavor of the ripe Alentejan grapes.
