2013 Paxis (Djf) Paxis Red Blend
DFJ Vinhos 2013 Paxis Red (Lisboa)
This dark, structured wine, with its balanced blend of Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz, is firm with tannins and dense berry fruits. Full in the mouth, it is a concentrated wine that brings out a strongly chalky texture. The wine is still moving towards a rich future. Drink from 2017.

Classic fermentation method with destemming and pre fermentative skin contact followed of the application of dry yeasts. Fermentation up to 30º C in the first 2/3, and lowering down to 20º C during the last 1/3. During the whole fermentative process, pumping over 2 times per day, using each time half of the volume contained in the vat. After the alcoholic fermentation, the cap is plunged for 30 days, and during that period, extraction of the gentle tannins is conducted, along with the malolactic fermentation and the natural stabilization of the wine.
Winemaker tasting notes:
A delicious wine. Captivating with its impressive aroma and perfectly smooth flavour of fresh cherry, raspberry and spice notes. Smooth medium body red wine the end of tasting it’s tasty, elegant and persistent.
Excellent with food or by itself. Good complement of roasts, barbecue, pastas, vegetarian and cheese dishes.
We recommend to serve at the temperature of 16-18ºC.
