Wine maker notes
The Reserva is the jewel of the Casa de Santar portfolio. After crushing, pressing and settling, the juice for this wine ferments in stainless steel with 3 to 4 pump-overs per day to increase richness and prevent alcohol evaporation. An extended post-fermentation maceration on the grapeskins and aging for a year in 100% new Seguin Moreau French oak barrels completes the maturation. During this time the wine is racked twice. There is a light egg white fining and no filtration. This deep colored wine has attractive aromas of chocolate, smoke, raisins and warm fruits, with a distinctively spicy edge. Velvety on the palate, its brilliant blackberry-like flavors are accented with notes of roasted coffee, herbs and tobacco. The creamy texture is lush, the finish earthy and satisfying.

Associated to Paco dos Cunhas de Santar is Sociedade Agricola de Santar, a manor house of the XVII and XVIIi Centuries. Surrounded by hedges, boxwoods and labyriths of flowers, is a perfectly preserved cellar. Built in granite, with its historical tiles, it houses in an ancient environment, the most modern and advanced technologies. Top quality wines are produced here, in a 400 year-old structure. In the balcony of the tasting room, you can taste wines of different ages. Next to the cellar the acclaimed vineyards are surrounded by pine trees and chestnut groves. The high-quality grape varieties produce the acclaimed white and red wines of Casa de Santar, that range from all market requirements, and also the Late Harvest, for dessert.
