From our best vines, we selected the soundest and in the best state of maturity grapes to make this excellent wine.

These grapes were handpicked in late September, gently crushed and placed in an 8ºC “cold bath” for four days before fermentation.

This technique is useful to extract more aromas and fruitier flavours, augmenting the complexity and structure of softer tannins.

Alcoholic fermentation occurred with selected yeasts for seven days at a temperature range of 25ºC to 28ºC.

Aged for nine months in American and French oak barrels.

The intense colour on the bottle pulls you in, while the powerful nose captivates you with layer upon layer of spices, soil and tobacco – all in a rich base of ripe black cherry, blackcurrants, and blueberry jam.

Rich, round, succulent and with an oral coating, it offers sweet black cherry before going to brighter red fruits on the palate.

Subtler tones of caramel and sweet oak complement the fruit beautifully.

The large classical structure of the tannin and soft acidity persist until a spicy finish.

Ideal to pair at the table with grilled or roasted well-seasoned meats, like the famous Alentejo chop.

It also pairs exquisitely with several cod dishes or solely with cheeses or sausages.

Recommended serving temperature 16ºC to 18ºC.
