Intense cassis fragrance. Medium-bodied, with soft tannins.

40% Jaen (known as Mencia in north-western Spain, where it’s increasingly making some great wines), 25% Touriga Nacional and a few of the other usual Portuguese suspects for good measure. Despite hot summers, the high altitude ensures high diurnal temperature differences, keeping the grapes lean, crisp and fresh. A perfectly clear ruby colour, with an intense ‘cassis’ fruit bouquet. In the mouth it’s medium bodied and unoaked but quite powerful, with soft tannins and a long finish.

About Quinta Das Maias

Luis and Luisa Lourenco lead this family estate in the foothills of the Serra de Estrela mountain range, Portugal. First established in 1893, the name ‘Quinta Das Maias’ derives from the Portuguese word for the month of May, which is when striking yellow Weaver’s Broom flowers decorate the vineyards. Certified organic, Quinta das Maias is a haven for several lesser-known grape varieties - expertly watched over by the Lourencos, who also own the award-winning Quinta dos Roques estate.
