Antonio Madeira Dão Tinto 2018

$49.00 inc. GST

2018 was a very hard year, we lost 60% of our grapes, mainly because of 3 months of rain between mid-April and mid-July and also because of 4 days of hot winds of 45°C that burned 30% of our grapes. Harvest started on September 23rd.


Tinto 2018 is a red wine produced from the blending of several vines where there are many indigenous grape varieties, especially the Alfrocheiro, Tinta Pinheira and Jaen. This wine is a « vin de soif » with deepness and complexity.

The vinification philosophy was to respect the grapes and nature and focus on seeking the expression of the terroir of Serra da Estrela, thus, no other product was used except sulphur.


Alcoholic fermentation took place in open vats with traditional treading and began naturally, with the yeast from the vine itself, to express its identity in the purest form.


Very little extraction was sought. After pressing, the wine was placed directly into used French oak barrels, where malolactic fermentation took place until the following spring and where it aged for 18 months. Bottling took place in July 2020.


Complex nose, notes of mint, fresh fruit, floral touch, spices. « Vin de soif » with deepness, tasty, fresh and elegant.
