Cartuxa is one of the oldest wineries in Portugal and is steeped in history. The name Cartuxa comes from the Cartuxa monastery that the Carthusians started to build in 1587 and finished in 1598. In 1871 the Cartuxa monastery was rescued from ruin by the Eugénio de Almeida family. This bottling from the esteemed Portuguese vineyard uses a trio of grapes; Trincadeira, Alicante Bouschet and Aragonez. After harvest and blending, the wine is aged for an additional 12 months in oak barrels to allow the flavours to develop.
