Red Wine Argilla 2016
Argilla Red Wine MMXVI
The red wine argilla, produced in Herdade da Anta de Cima, owned by Tenreiro’s family, is located in Montargil hills, Alentejo region. In Anta de Cima were tore up the last vineyards in the 50’s of the last century and, as a witness, the old cellar clay jars still resists in time, rooess but standing in their thick stone walls. In 2012 were produced the rst argilla white and red. A new cycle begins, a project that combines tradition, modernity, and which seeks excellence in the production of this exciting, unique and so passionate product: Wine.
Harvest of 2016
We characterized the year of 2016 as a complicated year with a break in production. The winter had a precipitation below normal, followed by a very humid spring, which generated some phytosanitary problems. In summer it was very hot, with peaks of temperature rise, leading to a rather irregular maturation. These grapes were harvested by hand in mid-September.
