Product details

Winemaking

It was created from low-yielding old vines in the Cima Corgo region of Douro Valley. The grapes were trodden in "lagares" and later the Port was matured in large wooden vats and also in barrels at our lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia.

Tasting Notes

Concentrated aromas of ripe dark fruits, damsons and hints of black pepper. Intense on the palate and full bodied with a long rich after-taste. It can be enjoyed now, but will become more complex with further cellaring until 2015-2020.

Store and serve advices

Recommended serving at a temperature of 16 to 18ºC. To fully benefit from its qualities we recommend it be decanted before serving.

Food Pairing

Sweet desserts suggestions: Chocolate desserts, specially dark chocolate. Cheese suggestions: Cheddar, Gouda, Brie. Meal suggestions: Spicy dishes with red meat or "wild animals", lamb and veal meat or peppersteack.
