Tannic & Chalky

Paulo Laureano is one of the most respected Portuguese winemakers and a reference for wines in the Alentejo region. Agronomist and oenologist, trained between Portugal, Australia, and Spain, after teaching at the University of Évora for 10 years, he decided to dedicate himself exclusively to what has moved him since 2003, making wine.

As the name indicates, this wine is made with old vines of Portuguese native varieties such as Aragonez, Trincadeira and Alicante Bouschet. The grapes ferment in stainless steel vats and aged for 12 months in new and used French oak barrels.

It shows a generous, rounded nose of brambly/blackberry jam, perfumed florality, some oak vanilla and nutmeg. It is medium-full bodied, soft, genteel and warming with fine chalk tannin. Some minerality on the finish. The length is very good to excellent.

Pair this wine with smoked meats or coq au vin.

About the Winery

Paulo Laureano

Paulo Laureano is one of the most respected Portuguese winemakers and a reference for wines in the Alentejo.

Agronomist, winemaker trained between Portugal, Australia and Spain, after teaching at the University of Évora for 10 years, decided to dedicate himself, exclusively, to what has moved him since 1993: designing wines. Especially in the company he created with his family in 1999 and which has become increasingly important in his life.

Paulo Laureano defines himself as a minimalist winemaker, for whom designing wines is a passion, unveiling their aromas and flavors, evaluating and optimizing the reasons for his identity and personality, promoting them as true sources of pleasure.

His exclusive bet on Portuguese varieties reflects his way of being and looking at wine as a factor of culture and civilization.

90 points - David Lawrason

This is a blend of three varieties from the sunny south of Portugal. It shows a generous, rounded nose of brambly/blackberry jam, perfumed florality, some oak vanilla and nutmeg. It is medium-full bodied, soft, genteel and warming with fine chalk tannin. Some minerality on the finish. The length is very good to excellent. Tasted March 2022
