Monte da Ravasqueira launches espumante e novo tinto MR Premium
Monte da Ravasqueira presents two very exclusive and tribute new wines: the Ravasqueira Sparkling Wine Great Reserve and the MR Premium Touriga Nacional, both a 2012 vintage. While the Ravasqueira Sparkling Wine Great Reserve pays tribute to the Arraiolos carpet, the MR Premium Touriga Nacional, pays tribute to the 20th year after Ravasqueira’s World title on the Hitch competition, in Belgium, in 1996. This world title was achieved with Portuguese Lusitano horses from Monte da Ravasqueira.
The Ravasqueira Sparkling Wine Great Reserve 2012 is a 100% Alfrocheiro variety. It was harvested by hand and produce according to the traditional method, the second fermentation was done in the bottle, where it rested for 36 months.
The MR Premium Touriga Nacional 2012 aged for 24 months in barrels and 2 years in bottle. It shows a live acidity which makes it possible to evolve positively in the next 20 years. A young, strong and complex wine that evidences a disruptive tasting considering the grape variety used in this wine, thanks to the singularity of its minerality and freshness, only possible in Monte da Ravasqueira’s terroir.
