Opta Wines increases its portfolio with the entry of a new wine – Opta Grand Reserve 2015. This wine is defined as “a passionate Dão” and promises to surprise.
With a multi-regional and diversified portfolio, Opta Wines innovates to meet the new consumers needs, who are increasingly demanding and looking for different sensations. To achieve more sophisticated palates, where quality, level and surprise factor are a must have, the Opta Grand Reserve 2015 emerged.
Created by the winemaker Nuno Cancela de Abreu, Opta Grand Reserve 2015 promises to surprise through the nuances of eucalyptus, both in aroma and flavor. Of great complexity, elegance and diversity, this wine is the finished example of the best of Dão.
Touriga Nacional, Alfrocheiro and Tinta Roriz grape varieties, after three days of cold contact the fermentation took place at 24ºC for two weeks with gentle maceration in stainless steel tanks. “The 18-month stage in French oak barrels softened the tannins and gave it great complexity and a very own elegance of Dão’s great wines,” said Nuno Cancela de Abreu.
Camilo Leite, Opta Wines partner, said ” Opta Grand Reserve 2015 marks the difference, once conferred by the terroir unique and very characteristic, resulting from the eucalyptus mantle that surrounds our vineyard.” He adds that “some leaves of eucalyptus, the least persistent, can be found in the soil, conferring a unique and very characteristic terroir, of perfect harmony between grapes, granitic soil and our viticultural practices.”
The difference of this wine is also present in the details of its image, carefully thought out so that Opta Grand Reserve 2015 is a truly distinct wine. Examples of the difference are the Bordeaux bottle (in contrast to typical Dão burgundy), the sublime tube packaging with the representation of eucalyptus leaves and the green wax.
Perfect for special occasions, Opta Grand Reserve 2015 goes well with red meats, game meats and roasts.
Opta Grand Reserve 2015 joins a portfolio of 14 wines from five different regions: Dão, Alentejo, Bairrada, Bucelas and Setúbal.
