This is a deep-coloured lively, peppery wine full of fresh fruit flavours it is bottled after three years in cask. An ideal Port for informal drinking.
"Bright Ruby color. Intense youthful nose with a distinctive fruity character reminiscent of wild cherries. On the palate is well balance, with intense fruit and good length. Drink it slightly chilled as an aperitif or at room temperature with a dessert."
Carlos Agrellos, Technical Director
