The Story

Tiara is a fresh and elegant white wine.The slow fermentation (three to five months) and the altitude of the vines give elegance and freshness, whilst the age of the vines (an average of 60 years) is responsible for its concentration.

This reinvented Tiara also boasts a new image, a more elegant and distinguished bottle and a new capsule.

Vintage 2012

2012 was marked by the lack of rain in the Douro region. As a result, the growing cycle began, on average, 15 days later than in previous years. On the other hand, winter 2012 also saw very low temperatures, which resulted in the good and well balanced growth of the vegetation. The ripening period was cooler than usual, leading to a good balance between sugar and acidity, a key factor for a fresh and balanced taste. 

The harvest took place in mid-September. The grapes were transported chilled and pressed during the night. Decanting took place for 24 hours, followed by alcoholic fermentation in large barrels, at a temperature varying between 8-13°C. The low temperature led to the wine fermenting during a year. Malolactic fermentation was carried out, thus differentiating it from its previous editions. Due to natural fermentation conditions, Tiara 2012 has residual sugar.

Inside Information

Clear and crystalline colour. The long period of fermentation in barrels has created a very deep and mineral nose. This wine excels for its vegetal character, since its fruit notes are very discreet. Vibrant in the mouth, is very precise and balanced, with the acidity, alcohol and sugar combining perfectly. Unique in its energy and profile, Tiara 2012 promises a long life ahead in the bottle.
