The wines take their name from the Carthusian monks, who since 1598 have lived a life of solitude and prayer in the Monastery of Santa Maria Scala Coeli.
The reds are a blend of the Alentejo’s most traditional grape varieties: Trincadeira, Aragonez, Alfrocheiro, Periquita, Moreto and Tinta Caiada. Aged in oak, the wines are elegant, with good structure combing the aromas of the grape varieties used and conferring a persistent and complex flavour.
Cartuxa Red Reserve is the result of a detailed selection of grape varieties from parcels of the oldest vines of the Eugenio de Almeida Foundation.
Grapes: Alicante Bouscheta, Aragonez
