Quinta Do Infantado Tawny 750ml Nv

$17.00
TYPE: TAWNY

Touriga Franca/Touriga Nacional/Tinta Roriz/Tinta Barroca. From exclusively Class A parcels (Serra di Cima and Serra Douro) totaling 12 hectares on poor schist soils. The fruit is hand-harvested, partly destemmed and fermented in lagar and tank; fermentation is stopped with 77%-degree wine brandy. The wine is aged in very old pipas. A pipa or 'pipe" in English is the traditional 550-liter wooden cask used for aging, as well as measuring quantities of, port; it is ideal for tawnies, as oxidation is promoted by its horizontal orientation, smaller capacity and thinner staves (versus the thicker ones of the huge wooden tank called a tonel or balseiro used for ruby and vintage ports). Infantado tawny finishes at a modest 19.5% and 70 grams/liter of residual sugar, considerably drier than most tawnies. The average age in the bottle is 4-5 years. 20,000 to 25,000 numbered bottles produced annually.
