Quinta da Bica Vinhas Velhas 2015

A Fine Red From Portugal

From the vine¬≠yards of Por¬≠tu¬≠gal comes this fine red that has a medi¬≠um to strong tan¬≠nin val¬≠ue, lend¬≠ing acid¬≠i¬≠ty and com¬≠plex¬≠i¬≠ty of flavor. 

Tast­ing Notes from the Curator

Quin¬≠ta da Bica is a famous win¬≠ery in Por¬≠tu¬≠gal and is rich in his¬≠to¬≠ry, being one of the first wine bot¬≠tlers in the Dao region. Wines made in the Dao region are made at high alti¬≠tude. This imbues Quin¬≠ta da Bica Vin¬≠has Vel¬≠has 2015 with a strong robust fla¬≠vor that is more acidic than sweet. Made from a vari¬≠ety of grapes includ¬≠ing the nation¬≠al¬≠ly acclaimed Touri¬≠ga Nacional, the wine is a dry red. This wine ages extreme¬≠ly well and can be stored for a pro¬≠longed peri¬≠od to enhance its richness. 


As a bold red, Quin¬≠ta da Bica Vin¬≠has Vel¬≠has 2015 pairs very well with red meat. The gami¬≠er the meat the bet¬≠ter, so you don‚Äôt need to lim¬≠it your¬≠self to match¬≠ing this with beef. It will work splen¬≠did¬≠ly with the deep fla¬≠vor of lamb or veni¬≠son. Accom¬≠pa¬≠ny¬≠ing sauces for these meats as well as stews are great¬≠ly enriched by adding some of this wine; it can even be used to mari¬≠nade these meats before cooking. 

This wine can also be paired with poul¬≠try, the gami¬≠er the bet¬≠ter, and match¬≠es duck very well. It is sug¬≠gest¬≠ed that if matched with chick¬≠en, the dish be grilled to bring out a charred chick¬≠en flavor.

Regard¬≠ed as one of the old¬≠est estab¬≠lished wine regions in the coun¬≠try, the area is sur¬≠round¬≠ed by moun¬≠tains on all sides, giv¬≠ing the wine an added char¬≠ac¬≠ter due to the elevation.
