Quevedo Q Grande Reserva Red 2014

Beautiful wine, beautiful flavor

A very bold, dry red wine, the Queve¬≠do Q Grande Reser¬≠va from Por¬≠tu¬≠gal comes in an exquis¬≠ite box, mak¬≠ing it the per¬≠fect gift.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

A rich, ruby col¬≠or, this Douro wine is fra¬≠grant, exud¬≠ing a but¬≠ter¬≠scotch aro¬≠ma. It gives off fla¬≠vors of dark berries and fruit, and is a gen¬≠er¬≠ous and bal¬≠anced wine.

The Queve¬≠do Q Grande Reser¬≠va comes in a gor¬≠geous box made of dark stained wood. Del¬≠i¬≠cate¬≠ly engraved are the labels, in beau¬≠ti¬≠ful gold writ¬≠ing. An ele¬≠gant cut out of the let¬≠ter Q is found in the mid¬≠dle, show¬≠ing off the bright gold¬≠en Q on the bot¬≠tle label.

Aes¬≠thet¬≠i¬≠cal¬≠ly gor¬≠geous, and com¬≠plete¬≠ly deli¬≠cious, this Por¬≠tu¬≠gal gem is per¬≠fect to give as gifts, or to dis¬≠play on a shelf, ready to open for any celebration.

PREPA­RA­TIONS AND PAIRINGS

A sweet Port wine com¬≠ple¬≠ments salty cheese, like a Parmi¬≠giano Reg¬≠giano, so beautifully.

The Queve¬≠do Q Grande Reser¬≠va shines its bright¬≠est when paired with red meats, like a good juicy steak, a roast rack of lamb, or a per¬≠fect¬≠ly seared veni¬≠son. It also goes so well with a good pasta.

For dessert, try hav¬≠ing this Douro delight with some slices of fresh mel¬≠on, or a cr√®me brul√©e. Anoth¬≠er curi¬≠ous and tasty com¬≠bi¬≠na¬≠tion is tawny port paired with vanil¬≠la or cof¬≠fee ice cream.

AN EXACT­ING PROCESS

Queve¬≠do prides itself on its qual¬≠i¬≠ty wines, and boasts its care¬≠ful and exact¬≠ing process¬≠es. The pro¬≠duc¬≠tion of the Queve¬≠do Q Grande Reser¬≠va is no different.

This par¬≠tic¬≠u¬≠lar wine was har¬≠vest¬≠ed in the Autumn of 2014, when the berries were firm and plump and burst¬≠ing with fla¬≠vor. Made of a blend of choice grapes, name¬≠ly the Touri¬≠ga Nacional, Touri¬≠ga Fran¬≠ca, and Tin¬≠ta Ror¬≠iz‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČall of which are famous for their small and sweet-smelling fruit, this Por¬≠tu¬≠gal wine is fer¬≠ment¬≠ed in stain¬≠less steel tanks for 10 days.

A long mac¬≠er¬≠a¬≠tion peri¬≠od occurs at 25ňöC, and to avoid the extrac¬≠tion of any dry tan¬≠nins, low pump¬≠ing is utilized.

The wine is then matured for 14 months in new 500L French oak casks, giv­ing it its unique­ly nut­ty, caramel aro­ma and flavor.

Storage Instructions

The ide¬≠al tem¬≠per¬≠a¬≠ture for stor¬≠age is between 16 to 18¬įC. Once opened, a bot¬≠tle will be good for 3 to 5 days stand¬≠ing upright in the refrigerator.
