Quinta do Montalto Vinha da Malhada Portugal , 2016, 750

The Vinha da Malhada takes its name from a 3.5-hectare vineyard of the estate where much of this fruit comes from.  It is a blend of several local and international varieties: Aragonez, Trincadeira, Touriga Nacional, and Syrah; all of which were brought into the cellar for a natural fermentation in 5 and 10 thousand liter stainless steel tanks.  Once both fermentations completed, the wine saw its first addition of SO2 for stabilization and preservation, was fined with bentonite and pea protein, and after a few months was bottled without filtration to result in a lively and wonderful red.  The color is deep and robust, and the aromatics that shoot from the glass are fruity and fresh.  The palate offers a very deep structure while being noticeably light on its feet, with bright tones of fruit, and a clean sensation of soil and place.
