Citrine colour and crystal clear, Redoma has a delicate, precise nose. Mineral notes prevail, accompanied by aromas of apricot and white fruit peel. Its flavour is fresh and balanced, with a slightly smoky character. Its wood is well integrated, and it is voluminous, with a long, complex finish. This wine is uniquely balanced, and has great ageing potential.
2012 was notable for a lack of rain in the Douro region. As a consequence, the growing cycle of the vine began, on average, 15 days later than in previous years. Furthermore, the Winter of 2012 was marked by low temperatures, enabling the vegetation to grow in an appropriate and balanced way. The maturation period was cooler than usual and the cool temperatures allowed the grapes to develop a good level of acidity, essential for a fresh, balanced palate.
After refrigerated transport, the grapes were selected at the entrance to the cellar, and a gentle pressing followed. The must was decanted for about 24 hours.
Fermentation took place in French oak barrels, in the presence of fine lees but without batonnage. The Redoma remained in the barrels for 10 months and was bottled on 25 June.
