Churchill’s Estates Grande Reserva 2013 is produced exclusively from old vineyards (+50 years) grown on the company’s Douro estates.

This wine has a solid deep violet colour. On the nose, a rich combination of floral and herbal aromas with cedarwood and resinous undertones. Powerful but elegant on the palate and well structured, with a juicy middle palate, ending in a long and complex finish.

  • SOURCING

    This wine is produced exclusively from old vineyards (+50 years) grown on the company’s Douro estates.

  • GRAPE VARIETIES

    Field blend including Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Francisca and Tinto cão.

  • WINEMAKING NOTES

    The grapes are picked into small boxes of approx. 20 kilos and brought to the winery where they undergo a careful selection process before being crushed. The vinification takes place in small stainless steel fermentation tanks. The grapes are fully destemmed and crushed. After 4 days of cold maceration the fermentation process follows under temperature controlled conditions. The juice is gently pumped over the skins during fermentation which is long and even ensuring good aromatic and poliphenolic extraction.

  • AGEING

    100% of this wine is aged for 12-15 months in new French oak casks. It is fined and lightly filtered before bottling.

  • SERVING RECOMMENDATIONS

    Serve at room temperature (16-18ºC) and decant before serving.
