OUR WINES

Coelheiros' image transcribes its connection to the territory, origins and traditions. Inspired by the art of the Arraiolos' embroidery, it evokes the uniqueness of each block and each grape variety, and the way they are meticulously crafted, stitch by stitch, yet always integrated in their whole, in a perfect symbiosis with nature. Synonymous with consistency and endurance, this centenary art expresses the distinctive profile of our wines: wines with longevity that evolve with time.

A CLASSIC FROM ALENTEJO

Tapada de Coelheiros red is a historical wine that was first produced in 1991. Since the beginning, Cabernet Sauvignon has been an important part of the blend, and so it remains to this day, having become one of the icons of this variety in Portugal. 

THE SEARCH FOR BALANCE

The wine originates in Vinha Leonilde, which was planted in 1982 in honor of D. Leonilde Silveira, for her dedication to the land, estate and region. The experience of several harvests and a better understanding of our soils allowed for the introduction of Alicante Bouschet, leading us to the current blend. 

VINIFICATION

Each block is fermented separately in order to better express its singularity. It ages for 18 months in French barrels and 18 months in bottle. 

AROMA AND PALATE

Powerful nose with black fruit notes involved in spices and tobacco. The intensity of Cabernet Sauvignon's freshness stands out in the mouth, followed by the silky texture of Alicante Bouschet, leading to an elegant and persistent finish.

Coelheiros Vinha do Taco

Coelheiros Vinha do Taco

A HISTORIC VINEYARD

Located at the source of the Arraiolos creek, Vinha do Taco is an emblematic vineyard because it is the place where the Silveira family introduced Coelheiros’ wines to their friends for the first time. The vineyard was planted in 2001, where we find Petit Verdot, which gives origin to this wine. Coelheiros Vinha do Taco is only produced in years of exceptional quality and in limited quantities. 

TERROIR

Vinha do Taco benefits from a southwest exposure and a granitic soil with good depth. It produces grapes with intense color. A late ripener with low yields, our Petit Verdot gives origin to wines that have good natural acidity and great aging potential. 

 

VINIFICATION

The fermentation takes place in a stainless steel tank and the wine is aged for 18 months in French oak barrels. The wine is only released after five years of bottle aging.
 

AROMA AND PALATE

The nose has the characteristic Petit Verdot moss notes that are well integrated with the spices developed during barrel aging. The palate shows remarkable elegance with a vibrant acidity and a long and persistent finish.
