Description

Quinta da Mariposa Tinto

Quinta da Mariposa Tinto is an easy drinking wine with ripe red fruit and berry flavours. Furthermore it is made from native grapes from the Dao region (Tinta Roriz (35%), Touriga Nacional (35%), Jaen (30%)). In addition the palate is long, with firm tannins and good acidity.

After working with some of the best wineries of the Dão region, oenologist Lúcia Freitas returned to her family estate in Terras de Senhorim to establish Quinta da Mariposa.

This is a project that harmonizes her respect for tradition and her dream of making wines of extraordinary character from the region she knows so well.

Together with her husband Filipe, plans are currently underway to convert the town’s local nightclub into a winery. Serendipitously this is where the couple danced together when they were young.

“We are lucky to be born in wine region we love… or was that we were born here that made us fall in love…”

Quinta da Mariposa practice sustainable agriculture so they can craft wine whilst also preserving the wine culture for future generations.

Most importantly, they only use native varieties found in the Dão region. This ensures their crop is perfectly suited to the soil and the climate.

Their estate is modest and everything is done by hand.

Similarly the wine is produced with respect for the natural characteristics of the grapes. They intervene as little as possible to obtain quality wine that are true to their origins and terroir.

Firstly, the grapes are harvested manually into 20kg boxes. After crushing and full destemming, the grapes go into a small open stainless steel vat, where they macerate under low temperature for 48 hours.

The fermentation is slow and the temperature controlled.

This wine is also suitable for Vegans and Vegetarians.
