The grapes are harvested in the end of August according to the evolution of the grape’s maturation in each vine, and in the morning so that the freshness of the grapes can be maintained. In the winery, after the grapes are destemmed and crushed, the straining of the must and the pressing are performed thus maintaining the qualitative and varietal characteristics of the must. The tear must (must which runs without pressing) clarifies between 18 and 24 hours and ferments at a controlled and constant temperature of 18ºC throughout 14 days. After the period when the wine stabilises, it is then bottled during the winter.

Clear appearance with a well-defined citrine colour. Good aromatic intensity combined with notes of tropical and citrus fruits. Soft and fresh flavour with strong aromas of lime; long citrus finish.

Should be served young (2-3 years) and chilled (8-10ºC). A pleasant accompaniment with seafood, grilled fresh fish, white meats, or as an aperitif.

  • Harvest: 2018
  • Grape varieties: Aragonez, Trincadeira and Alicante Bouschet
  • Soil: Chalky clay and schist

The harvest takes place in the best plots of the vineyards cultivated with Aragonez, Trincadeira and Alicante Bouschet grapes which are certified for the production of DOC Alentejo wine, sub-region of Borba. The harvest will be performed throughout the month of September. In the winery – after the de-stemming and crushing of the grapes – we initiate
the process of alcoholic fermentation, which is followed by the maceration for 6 to 10 days at a controlled temperature of 25 ºC. After the malolactic fermentation, the wine ages for 6 to 12 months in stainless steel vats before being bottled.

Ruby-coloured with purple gleams. Good aromatic intensity combined with notes of red plums. Balanced flavour, very nice freshness and persistent finish with notes of bittersweet fruit.

Should be served young (2-3 years) and at room temperature (16-18ºC). A nice accompanment for meat and cheese.

  • Harvest: 2018
  • Grape varieties: Aragonez and Syrah
  • Soil: Chalky-clay and schist

The grapes were selected from certified vines for the production of D.O.C. wines from the sub-region of Borba. The harvest was performed manually during the mornings to achieve the ideal temperature of the grapes as they arrived in the winery. The grapes were then destemmed and slightly crushed, process after which a peculiar maceration was performed in stainless steel vats for 12 hours at a controlled temperature of 10 ºC. After the sangria and slight pressing, the tear must ferments in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature of 15 ºC. The stabilisation through the cold method and the final filtration then follow. The wine is immediately bottled to maintain its fruitiness, freshness and persistence in flavour

Clear appearance, and a salmon colour. Good intensity and aromas of black currant and red plums. Flavours of wild fruits, very fresh with bittersweet finish.

At 8-10 ºC. Pairs well with seafood, fresh grilled fish, white meats. It can also be served as an aperitif. It should be consumed after bottling or within 2-3 years.

Grapes produced in certified vineyards through an integrated production system and approved for DOC Alentejo wines, subregion of Borba. The grapes were manually harvested in the morning, allowing the fruit to present a good temperature as it arrived in the winery, which makes the quality control easier for the must and the wine.

In the winery, after the de-stemming and the crushing of the grapes, the must is exhausted and pressed, guaranteeing its qualitative and varied characteristics. The tear-must (the must which flows without pressing) clarifies for 18 to 24 hours and ferments at a constant temperature of 18 ºC for 14 days. After this period, the wine stabilises through physical processes and is bottled after the winter.

This wine has a citrus colour.

The aroma is young and intense with notes of citrus fruits and orange blossom.

The flavour is fresh and unctuous, with a nice harmony among the acidity of the green apple, the minerality and the persistent tropical fruits.

Temperature: 8-10ºC

Excellent option as an aperitif. This wine should be consumed while young, but it can be stored for four years.

The grapes were then destemmed and slightly crushed, process after which a peculiar maceration was performed in stainless steel vats for 12 hours at a controlled temperature of 10 ºC. After the sangria and slight pressing, the tear must fermented separately, 60% in Portuguese, American and French oak barrels, 40% in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature of 15ºC. After fermentation, the wine continued to age for another 6 months in the same barrels, after which the final batch was finally made with the rest of the wine. Bottling was performed after the filtration process.

The 2011 vintage has revealed exceptional characteristics to create this Adega de Borba Garrafeira. It was produced from grapes cultivated in the oldest vineyards of the region, which have a foundation composed by schist soils, with a meticulous control of productivity of the grape and accompanying of the maturation stage of each grape and specific plot. After they arrived in the winery, the grapes were slightly crushed with total destemming, process after which the alcoholic fermentation followed. It was performed in stainless steel vats with moderate mechanical stepping. Maceration was performed for 10 days under a controlled temperature of 24 ºC. The wine aged for 12 months in French and American oak casks, after which a slight filtration occurred. It then aged for 30 months in bottle in the cellar.

Deep grenade colour.
Good aromatic intensity with aromas of black ripe fruits, cocoa and roasted nuts.

The Talha Wine production process is based on an ancestral roman vinification system, during which the talha or clay pot has a dual purpose: the production and storage of the wine. Therefore, the wine is made and kept in the very same receptacle. Currently, during the Talha Wine production process the grapes are poured into a small hopper which is connected to a crusher/destemmer, where the grapes are separated from their stems and crushed. The grapes and the juice are then transported with the help of a pump into the clay pots (talhas), where the fermentation process starts. For 3 to 4 weeks, while the fermentation process takes place, the solid portion of the grape must, also known as pomace, rises to the surface of the clay pot. The clay pot has then to be stirred, a procedure also named “punching the cap”, in order to mix the must with the grape skins and seeds, so that the solid part gets immersed into the liquid part. Slowly and leading to the end of the fermentation process, day by day, the skins and seeds sink to the bottom of the clay pot, forming a sediment called the lees. The lees’ main purpose is to serve as a natural filter for the wine, so that it is ready to drink, as soon as the wine leaves the clay pot by gravitation, through an orifice in its inferior part. For the Talha Wine to obtain the DOP (Protected Designation of Origin) Alentejo certification, it must be kept with the lees in the clay pot, until St. Martin’s Day of the year of harvest (11th of November). Requirement which has been fulfilled with this wine we are presenting through our brand Adega de Borba – Vinho de Talha (Winery of Borba – Talha Wine).

The wine has a garnet red colour. Ripe red fruit aromas and flavours, with a lot of freshness which persists with a lasting smoothness. A wine with flavours of grape.

Best served at 16ºC.

Goes well with culinary delights and typical gastronomic dishes from the Alentejo region. Best consumed after bottling.
