Winemaker's Notes

The majority of the grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks for a week, while a small portion of the grapes from the old vineyards were foot-trodden and fermented in lagers for the same period. This blend is dark red, with crimson highlights and a mature red fruit nose, with hints of (a local Portuguese herb) and dusty earth. The palate shows great structure and a full-bodied elegance, with mature, round tannins, leading to a long, persistent finish.

Varietal Composition: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roiz, Tinta Amorela, Tinta Barroca and Soudo
