Description

Hugo Mendes Lisboa Castelão 2021

Hugo Mendes Lisboa Castelão Red has an intense red color, aroma of wild berries and black pepper, fine spices. 

This is a fresh wine, full of beautiful aromas of red fruit notes. It has an herbal touch of tree bark and pine needles, that will make you salivate. Mouth taste with ripe tannins, medium body, medium high acidity impeccably calibrated in the wine, all fresh and enveloping. Bottled early, it is understood that it gives an interesting and uncompromising taste, but full of balance and harmony. Long and persistent finish. 

Picked at the same time and fermented together. It undergoes a simple vinification. Total destemming, closed vat, spontaneous fermentation, pumping over as often as necessary to maintain the wine, followed by early pressing. Malolactic fermentation also took place spontaneously. 20% was aged in barrels to help season the lush fruit.
