TASTING NOTES OF HERDADE DAS SERVAS VINHAS VELHAS
Clear, deep violet red wine, with aromas of plum, black cherry, fig, chocolate, spices and also floral notes of violets. Complex, structured, full-bodied and fresh, with some hints of toast from barrel ageing, smoked notes, rich tannins and long finish, this wine has excellent potential for storage and ageing.Download PDF
The grapes were sorted manually, destemmed and underwent pre-fermentation maceration. Fermentation itself was carried out in “Lagares” and stainless steel vats with temperature control.Download PDF
In 21 years of production at Herdade das Servas, there have only been 5 editions of Vinhas Velhas (2005, 2009, 2012, 2014 and 2015). Old vines keep their own time, which is why this wine is only produced in years when they present truly perfect conditions.
In 1996/1997, chip budding was done on our old vines to allow us to grow different varieties on old rootstock.
A fine wine with five editions.
Made from the grapes of old vines that are over 55 years old.
Best served with well-prepared red meat!
