Quinta do Romeu Douro Tinto 2015 (750ml)

This beautiful estate, located in the district of Bragan?, in the northeast corner of the Douro wine region, has been in operation since 1874. The estate produces wine, olive oil and cork and has a beautiful restaurant located in an inn dating back the 19th century. The Men?es family, who founded and continue to operate the estate, seek balance between their crops, their environment, the people, and their local economy. Their 25 hectares of grapes and 120 hectares of olives have been certified organic since 1997. Eschewing international varieties, Romeu focuses only on autochthonous grapes; Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Tinto C?, Sous? and Touriga Franca for the reds; Gouveio, Rabigato, Viosinho and Arinto for the whites. The vines are all planted on shale, schist and quartz soils along the banks of the Douro.

The 2012 Moinho do Gato is the Men?es family? freshest example of their Douro reds. All organic and handpicked grapes (predominately Tourgia Nacional, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz, and Tinto C?) come into the cellar for manual selection and sorting. The stems are completely removed and followed by a gentle crushing, with slow and natural yeast fermentation in giant lagares where the fruit is crushed and worked by foot. No filtering or fining takes place, and the finished wine is expressive and delightful.
