Quinta da Serradinha Vinho Tinto '15

For decades, the Marques da Cruz family has proven that even in an Atlantic climate such as Leiria, grapes could be grown naturally, without the use of chemicals.

The goal, to produce wines that show the natural beauty of their special place, Quinta da Serradinha.

Today, António Marques da Cruz, 5th generation grower and winemaker is producing the best wines in Serra d’ Aire, and some of Portugal's most important white and red wines. 

We are so excited to welcome back the Serradinha Tinto with its latest release from the 2015 vintage.

A blend of Baga, Castelão, Touriga Nacional and Alfrocheiro from vines that were planted in 1954 on southeast facing, limestone hillsides. 

The grapes were de-stemmed into open vats, with barefoot treading occurring three times a day. Fermented with natural yeasts, it was aged in old seasoned oak barrels for two years.

Beautiful notes of dark cherry and mineral on the nose. Silky up front, with bright red fruit, it builds with soft tannin, herbs, earth notes and good freshness on the finish. 

If you think all Portuguese reds are over the top, fruit bombs, this shows the sheer elegance and complexity that can emerge from cool-climate, Atlantic influenced places such as Serradinha. 

This won't be around for very long, only 168 bottles came into Chicago, with them going to Perman Wine and Fat Rice.
