Madeira / Oak

Frequentemente ouvimos a palavra "madeira/carvalho", na descrição de um vinho. Mas o que queremos dizer quando dizemos que o vinho é amadeirado? O carvalho transmite varios aromas e gostos ao vinho tais como baunilha, especiarias, fumo, cravinho etc. A maioria dos vinhos tintos, e uma grande diversidade de vinhos brancos, passam algum tempo de maturação em carvalho, após a fermentação, e antes do engarrafamento. Maturação em carvalho, promove a interação dos compostos do vinho com os compostos da madeira, ajudando a criar complexidades adicionais no vinho. Nos vinhos tintos, a maturação em carvalho ajuda a fixar a cor e a amaciar os taninos. Sommelier Lisbon, nós adoramos vinho. ------------------------ We hear the word 'oak' mentioned frequently regarding wine. But what does it mean when we say that a wine is oaked? Oak gives various aromas and flavors to wine such as vanilla, spice,smoke, clove etc. Most red wines and many white wines spend some maturation time in oak after fermentation and before bottling. Oak maturation, helps create additional complexities in the wine. In red wines, oak maturation helps fix color and soften tannins. Sommelier Lisbon, we love wine!

SOMMELIER SHOW

 

 

We are a family of “wine lovers”, a space for sharing and interaction between wine producers, wine merchants, sommeliers and people who simply enjoy this magnificent nectar.

 

We would like to gather around our table and our wine a group of friends, from all social and professional spheres, who can share ideas and experiences around wine with us.

We started a series of initiatives, such as wine tasting, meetings with wine producers, visits to their farms and cooking workshops.

 

We count on your support to make Sommelier Lisbon a great Family!
