Pacheca Lagar Nº1 presents a deep ruby color. In the aroma it is very fruity with salient notes of ripe black fruit, such as blackberries and plums, accompanied with notes of chocolate from the barrel. It is very complex in the mouth with an acidity that gives it freshness, marked rounded tannins and a long and persis-tent finish.
This wine is obtained from grapes of Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional varieties planted in Quinta da Pacheca and from the vineyards of Vila Nova de Foz-Côa with around 40 years old. After careful selection by their best state, the grapes were harvested for chests of 25 kg and sent to the wine- making center where they were fully de-stemmed. Fermentation occurred during 9 days in the traditional 7-ton granitic stone tanks with foot stepping and smooth reassembles for blanket leaching and extraction of phenolic and aromatic compounds. At the end of the alcoholic fermentation the wine was transferred into new French oak barrels where malolactic fermentation occurred and aged for about 18 months.
About manufacturer
Quinta da Pacheca, one of the best known estates in the Douro region, was also one of the first properties to bottle wine under its own label. It is first mentioned in a document dated April 1738, where is it referred as “Pacheca’s”, because it was property of D. Mariana Pacheco Pereira. But it was only in 1903, when Dom José Freire de Serpa Pimentel decided to develop his interest in oenology, that he bought the estate and began to seriously dedicate himself to the risky business of winemaking. Today, a century and many successes later, a brand-new generation of the Serpa Pimentel family is at the head of Quinta da Pacheca: Maria, Catarina and José are the young new faces of this family old company.
