Description

VITICULTURE

One of Portugal’s largest and most progressive producers with 600 hectares spread across estates in five regions from Douro…

WINEMAKING

Following a tight control of maturation in order to harvest fully ripe and healthy fruit, the grapes are vinified without being totally destemmed and macerated for 5 days in cold temperatures. The fermentation lasted for about 6 days. Produced from a blend of traditional local grapes. Fermentation in stainless steel.

OAK TREATMENT

 

TASTING NOTE

Intense berry aromas with spice and rich earthy notes, vibrant plum and cherry on the palate with savoury hints, grippy tannins and a finely poised acidity.

FOOD MATCHING

“From Touriga Nacional to Trincadeira, the sweet buttery flavour and texture of lamb is a thing of beauty paired with a red of class, poise, balance and subtle fragrance.” Olly Smith – so drink with your classic Sunday roast lamb!
