Intro: Pera-Manca is Portugals most iconic wine brand with a history that spans over 700 years. This was also the wine that Cabral opened when he discovered Brazil. Cartuxa only releases this wine on the most exceptional years.
Region: Alentejo, Evora (D.O.C)
Grapes: Trincadeira & Aragonez
Aging: 18 months in Oak vat followed by 36 months in the Cartuxa Monastery cellars prior to release
Tasting Notes: Heavy garnet coloured wine. Intense and complex aroma of blackberry and raspberry, balsamic notes, pine and resin, white chocolate and linden. In the mouth it impresses from the first impact due to its freshness. Elegant, very concentrated, it has robust tannins that will grant the wine a great capacity for evolution.
