Beyra Tinto 2022

Beyra Tinto has a fruity aroma with a very elegant and discreet minerality. Berries and spices, fresh, with a fruity finish. The soul of this wine lies in the unique combination of the indigenous grape varieties Tinta Roriz and Touriga Nacional, from old vines.
The dgrapes come from vineyards planted in the plateau area of the Beira Interior wine region, at an average altitude of 700 meters, growing in granite and slate soils with quartz veins. The vineyards all consist of indigenous grape varieties perfectly adapted to the environmental and climatic characteristics created by the altitude. The grapes are picked by hand, and fully destemmed upon arrival at the winery. After this, the grapes are pressed and cooled. Fermentation takes place between 22 - 26ºC for 7 days with smooth maceration. The wine matures for 1 year in stainless steel vats until bottling.
  • About Beyra Vinhos De Altitude

    Surrounded by the mountains Estrela, Marofa and Malcata, Beira Interior's vineyards reach more than 750 meters above sea level. The main advantage of viticulture at altitude is the cooler climate. This preserves the acidity within the grape thanks to the temperature difference between day and night. The cool nights lead to a slower and more even ripening of the grape, enhancing the concentration of aromas and flavors. During the day, the greater radiation of the sun helps photosynthesis, giving more color and a controlled and balanced alcohol content.

    Beyra strives for innovation in viticulture in a region dominated by ancient vineyards, perfectly adapted to the rigors of altitude. It is one of the hidden treasures of Portugal's great vineyard heritage. Winemaker Rui Roboredo Madeira grew up in the heart of the Douro Superior. He has now been making wine in this region for more than 20 years. During many harvests, he has learned that by taking good care of the vineyards, a natural balance can be maintained. He gets the best from native varietals such as touriga nacional, touriga franca, tinta roriz and jaen. Made in its own winery, these wines can express the true character of the land. Especially notable is the excellent value for money.
