Cortes de Cima Tinto Alentejano 2007
Vibrant, deep red color with purple edges. Bright red berry fruit aromas, suggesting cherries and plums, with mint, chocolate and smokey oak complexity. Smooth, seamless, elegant palate, with supple fruit and silky tannins. It has lovely balance, great length and a very persistent aftertaste, showing extremely well at this early stage, but with enough intensity and structure to improve for several years in the bottle. An extremely good example of the excellent 2007 vintage, with good purity of fruit and elegance of style.
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.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
