Current Vintage 2011

The Casa da Passarella Abanico Reserva is a classical blend wine which comes from Casa da Passarella’s different vines. The varieties which it is made of are Touriga Nacional, Alfrocheiro and Jaen. By respecting the balance of the different parcels chosen, we harvest the grapes manually to 12 kg boxes. The fermentation occurs in traditional cement tanks. Pre and post-fermentative maceration is done, and the ageing process occurs partially in new French oak casks during a year. The stabilisation process prior bottling is undertaken naturally – we don’t submit this wine to any kind of filtration.

The Story

It is said that one day a sculptor got the look stuck in a known phenomenon of nature: a peacock displayed its majestic mantle of feathers, just to draw attention of the female and satiate his prohibited desires. The show was so splendid, that two days later the artist had already carved a piece based on what he had seen.
He gave it the name fan. In order to survive, he also gave it a simple use. And fans started reproducing throughout fashions, people, palaces, operas and seasons, as an essential adornment. But the world would always use the fan to expel heat, never to hold it within themselves. The world, except one woman: Teresa. Teresa had always been a shy and reserved girl, but at her 21st birthday she received a secret gift, a letter and a fan from an admirer, a nobleman who lived in Seville. In the letter, he offered her the absolute, and in return only asked her to always sleep with the fan really close. At the moment that she held the fan for the first time, Teresa became an Empress. Every night she dreamed about strange peacocks satiating their prohibited desires.
