Quinta da Lapa Nana Reserva 2017 75cl
Tasting Note: Juicy with a smooth texture, balanced mouthfeel with bright acidity. Good tannic structure. Plenty of ripe, red fruit with a touch of pepper & herb right on the mid palate. Develops to a warm spice & chocolate finish. It is a great wine now with aging potential for the next 6 years. Proud to get 90 Points on the Wine Enthusiast award in 2022.
This wine can be laid down for up to 6 years. Really interesting creaminess on the finish as well! Easy drinking & easy crowd pleaser!
Producer: Quinta da Conceição da Lapa was acquired in 1706 by D. Lourenço de Almeida from Captain Bartolomeu Lobo da Gama, for the sum of 11.500 silver crusades. A unique location where the best land was chosen among the fertile hills to the East of Montejunto mountain, a territory that is now part of the Tejo Wine Region.
D. Lourenço, son of the Count of Avintes was the great reformer & developer of Quinta da Lapa. He chose the highest ground of his vast estate to build a manor house with its chapel, farm buildings & an important wine cellar in order to produce the best wines from the surrounding vineyards. This reform dates from 1733 & almost three centuries later the estate underwent yet another much needed improvement. This included building a new winery & replanting the vineyards both with traditional local varietals & a selection of international grapes that best thrive in their terroir. The outcome of all their hard work shows as their wines have consistently earned important medals & awards at both international & domestic wine competitions.
