    • Tasting notes

      Very deep in colour. Great expression on the nose with elegant notes of blueberries and violet flowers, well integrated with hints of oak. The palate is very intense, fresh and balanced. The long and fresh finish leads to a fruity aftertaste.

    • Grape varieties

      40% Touriga Nacional, 25% Touriga Francesa, 25% Tinta Roriz, 10% Field blend

    • Vinification

      All grapes were de-stemmed and foot trodden in stone lagares. Maceration lasted 5 days at a controlled temperature.

    • Maturing

      Malolactic fermentation and ageing took place in stainless steel vats for 70% of the wine, and in French oak barrels for 30%.
