Dorina Lindemann 2017 Tinta Barroca

Producer Info
  • In the late 1970’s Hans Jörg Böhm, a German viticulturist of tremendous energy and passion, arrived in Portugal to undertake the daunting task of cataloging the Portuguese wine varietals. He suspected there were a number of lesser-known and unidentified varieties with great potential – he cataloged 340 different varietals and opened the first vine nursery in Portugal, dubbed “Evora” in the region of Alentejo.
  • This knowledge, passion and sense of purpose, to celebrate and ensure the future of indigenous varietals was passed to his daughter Dorina Lindemann, herself a young enologist who in 1997 founded the winery Quinta da Plansel.
  • Dorina’s work is focused on monovarietal wines and blends of the most significant grapes of northern Portugal: Touriga Nacional, Tinta Barroca and Touriga Franca. In 2001, she launched the first single varietal wines in Portugal and continues to champion these iconic grape varieties.
About the Wine
  • Fruit sourced from a small, 4.5 ha vineyard on the estate planted to Touriga Nacional and Tinta Barroca in 1994.
  • The soils are residual granite and metamorphic sedimentary soils and no herbicides are used.
  • Tinta Barroca is sturdy by nature with richness & grip – Dorina has also drawn great complexity & elegance form the grape in this bottling.
