Product details

Winemaking

The grapes from the younger vineyards contributed with 80% of the final blend. The remaining 20% came from the very old parts of the vineyards (over 70 year old). The great majority of the wines, both from the old as from the newer vineyards, were fermented in 10.000 kgs stainless steel tanks for a week. A small part of the grapes from the old vineyards were foot trodden and fermented in ‘lagares' for the same period. All wines were fermented under controlled temperature varying between 25º and 27ºC. The finest of the press wine, from a traditional basket press, was also used for ageing for the final blend. 80% aged for 14 months in stainless steel tanks. The remaining 20% aged in 225 litres used French Oak barrique for 14 months until final blending.

Tasting Notes

Very concentrated aroma, with intense mature red fruit aromas, hints of violets and "esteva" (a local Portuguese resinous bush). Great structure, full bodied, matured round tannins, with a long persistent finish.

Store and serve advices

Storage Lying down at a temperature of 15°C. Serve at a temperature of 16°C to 18ºC.
