New York, NY (PRWEB) November 18, 2010
Portuguese winery Adega de Borba has launched its new Adega de Borba Premium and Grande Reserva Cork Label Gold Limited Edition, at a media event at the Aldea Restaurant in New York.
"Adega de Borba has a special focus on the U.S. market. We have a plan for promotional events in the U.S. to build the Adega de Borba brand and reputation, by reaching out to wine consumers and opinion leaders," explains Manuel Rocha, CEO of Adega de Borba. “These wines represent the excellence of the terroir of the Alentejo region’s Borba DOC. In our new wines, some offer a more traditional profile with local grape varietals, and others show a more modern and global profile. I am quite optimistic that this will be highly appreciated by American consumers."
The “Adega de Borba” product line, which is a sales leader in volume for the Adega de Borba winery, will see new growth with the launch of a new DOC Alentejo Red positioned at the top of the product range. Adega de Borba Premium 2006 is designed by winemaker Oscar Gato and produced with grapes from Trincadeira, Alicante Bouschet and Cabernet Sauvignon in selected old vines from the Borba DOC.
This new range of Premium Adega de Borba has a production run of 30,000 bottles, an alcohol content of 14% and a recommended price of about $10 a bottle. The wine is especially suited to accompany rich foods as well as roasts, grilled red meats and even cheeses. The new wine is ready to drink now, or one could cellar the Premium 2006 for 6 years or so.
One of the iconic wines from Adega de Borba is its Cork Label Reserva. The new Grande Reserva Cork Label Gold 2007 is a limited first edition with the designation "Grande Reserva” due to the excellence of the grape harvest in 2007.
The Grande Reserva Cork Label Gold 2007 was bottled and aged for 12 months in the Borba cellars, with an alcohol content of 14.5%. Each of the 3,000 bottles produced has a suggested retail price of $20.
The wines of the Adega de Borba are expanding into the Northeast of the United States. Long appreciated in Portugal and Europe the table wines are soon to be available throughout New England and the Mid-Atlantic States. And, soon after that, to be sold nationally at wine shops.
