Producer Note
In 2003, José Ribeiro Vieira purchased a four hectare vineyard in the foothills of Serra
de Aire of Cortes, in the Alta Estremadura, near Lisbon. Vale da Mata pays tribute to
Vieira’s winemaker father, Manuel, who claimed that Vale de Mata was the site
where he succeeded in producing his best wines. The Vale de Mata project
respects the expression of its terroir, cultivating the vines sustainably and using
minimal intervention in the winery. Manuel gave this wine its name and his
granddaughter Catarina Viera has followed in his footsteps, continuing his
winemaking legacy. In 2018, Vale de Mata was awarded Best Wine Producer by
Revista de Vinhos.


Vineyard
Vale da Mata is the name of a small, old vineyard located in the foothills of Serra de
Aire, in Cortes. The vineyard has a maritime climate and is influenced by the Atlantic
Ocean. The parcel is just a few hectares and is situated on a steep terrain with rocky
soil. The land is extremely hard to work and is cultivated manually, with winter
pruning and green harvesting taking place by hand. Protected to the north, it has
good sunlight exposure throughout the day and is surrounded by olive trees, fig
trees, walnuts and shrubs. Vale de Mata is associated with several sustainable
programmes; they are a member of the FSC and grow all their grapes according to
organic philosophies. The vines are trained according to the Cordon Royat method
and the grapes are manually harvested at optimum maturity.


Winemaking
The wine was made following a philosophy of minimal intervention. The field blend
grapes were carefully sorted and then co-fermented using only indigenous yeasts.
The blend was then aged in French oak barrels for 10 months, imparting subtle
complexity, followed by a further six months in bottle.


Tasting Note
Floral notes combine with lively red fruits and well integrated oak. Smooth and round
on the palate, with a bright acidity that leaves a vibrant, lifted finish.
