Herdade do Freixo is an agricultural company from north-eastern Alentejo, in the municipality of Redondo in Portugal. The Freixo village lays at the same latitude as Lisbon but 2 hours’ drive inland, near Spain.

With a dimension of about 300 ha of pure Alentejo, in the village of Freixo, between Serra D’Ossa and Évora, its greatest ambition is the genuine preservation of this rural landscape and that its wines convey the best of the essence of their land, its vineyards and the terroir.

This modern winery is the first in Europe built entirely underground, over 20 meters deep. This allows to leave the landscape untouched, to use gravity flow instead of pumping, and ensures perfect temperature without wasting energy.

It took only took them 3 years to find their way into half of Michelin stars’ restaurant from North to South of Portugal.

Grape

40% Alicante Bouschet, 30% Touriga Nacional, 30% Cab Sauv

Vineyard & Vinification Note

35ha of vineyard that can be seen on the highest hill of the Estate, at an altitude of about 450 m, benefiting from a privileged sun exposure and greater aeration of the vines. Sustainable viticulture

Winemaking and ageing:

The grapes from selected varieties were harvested during their peak of ripeness, carried into 20 kg boxes and immediately led to the cellar. Destemmed, they were transported to fermentation tanks through a gravity flow system, where they fermented in moderate temperatures for approximately 10 days. The ageing process of 70% of the batch occurred in French and American oak barrels, conferring this wine both complexity and elegance, while maintaining the presence of fresh fruit notes.

Tasting Note

Ruby-coloured wine, with good concentration and black plum and red ripe fruit aromas. It presents a wide amplitude and precision in the mouth, soft tannins and alluring freshness, conferring it good longitude. Elegant, with great gastronomic capacity. To consume ideally young but with a good ageing potential (Winemakers’ notes).

Food Pairing

Perfect with traditional Portuguese meat and fish dishes, its freshness and elegance make it an ideal match to fusion cuisine, Italian pastas, and oriental dishes.
