2016 Cabeça de Toiro Grande Reserva Edição Comemorativa 25 Anos red
The 25th Anniversary Commemorative Edition is a blend of the Touriga Franca (60%), Cabernet Sauvignon (20%), and Alicante Bouschet (20%) grape varieties, aged for 12 months in French oak barrels, resulting in a wine with an intense garnet color. The balanced presence of oak and fruit results in a deep and complex aroma, with balsamic and floral nuances. Elegant on the palate, with very fine tannins, it has a long and persistent finish.
The origin of Quinta de S. João Batista is lost among stories of noble successions, donations to religious orders and other events. It was acquired in 1987 by Caves Dom Teodósio, now part of the Enoport Wines Group, and since then the estate has undergone a major restructuring of the vineyards and the construction of a modern winemaking centre.
Located in the Paul do Boquilobo Biosphere Nature Reserve, recognised by Unesco since 1981 as a World Biosphere Reserve, Quinta de S. João Batista is filled with centuries-old history, represented by the manor house, the manor house and the vineyard. João Batista is steeped in centuries-old history, represented by the colonial-style manor house, with an architectural ensemble of excellent cellars for ageing wine, and extends over a total area of around 145 hectares, 130 of which are used for planting vines.
