20000 Leguas Skin Contact Orange Wine
This is the perfect introduction to orange/skin contact wines! Grapes are harvested at night to retain freshness, then fermented on the skins and left to macerate for 10-15 days to extract colour, flavour and tannins. Pale orange in colour with aromas of tropical fruit, hazelnut and apple. The palate is well structured with sweet tannins and good acidity which complement the complex fruit flavours of dried orange rind, crystallised ginger, jasmine, dried apricots and a subtle nuttiness on the finish.
Food matching: Serve with baba ganoush, prawn pad thai or can stand up to some richer meat dishes.
Casa Relvas was founded in 1997 by Alexandre Relvas at “Herdade de São Miguel” in São Miguel de Machede – Redondo, where he saw the similar landscape as his African roots. Herdade da Pimenta is located on the plains of Évora, surrounded by the Pardiela river and a large forest of cork oaks. The fruity and aromatic profile and the singular freshness of their wines are due to the granite soils. Neighbouring areas are dedicated to Merino Branco sheep breeding.
Alentejo is a hot, dry region which covers approximately a third of the country. Wines are sold under Alentejo DOC or the more widely used Vinho Regional Alentejano designation. The region is named for its position south of the Tejo river, which cuts through Portugal, entering the ocean near Lisbon.
