Pistol is the first wine of the Talha Mafia family from the 2021 vintage.
A blend of Touriga Nacional, Alicante Bouschet, Aragonez and Syrah fermented in amphoras in a natural way, with very little intervention.
Pistol is a wine ready to drink, fruity, young and pure.
Wine maker notes:
The Touriga Nacional, Alicante Bouschet, Aragonez and Syrah varieties were fermented in amphoras with the indigenous yeasts and aged in the amphoras for 3 months plus another 3 months in neutral tanks. Aroma of red fruits, blackberry and esteva. Fruity mouth with a fresh acidity, young but round and integrated tannins. It has malolactic fermentation made (conversion of malic acid into lactic), which makes the acidity of the wine lower and the wine gains complexity.
Vidigueira soil: granitic and schist (ganite and schist soil), which transmits minerality and freshness to wine. Hand-harvested, grapes; whole-cluster pressed; fermented on the native yeasts, followed by a full malolactic on the naturally occurring bacteria; minimum effective sulfur for this wine, unfiltered at bottling. In keeping with our philosophy of minimal intervention.
