Cortes de Cima Trincadeira

One of the more common indigenous varieties in Southern Portugal, characterized by fruit, and low tannins.

Reviews

This spicy red combines the sweet notes of rhubarb with the rasp of cracked green peppercorns. It’s lightly floral and tight through the finish, then it evaporates, leaving a cool, clean impression.”- Wine & Spirits

”Firmly tannic, this young, wood-age wine is dark and brooding. It has a dense texture and the potential of ripe black fruits and powerful tannins. With a fine future ahead of it, the wine needs to age. Drink from 2018.” – Roger Voss Wine Enthusiast June 2016
