An open fruity nose, with ripe cherry and plum characters. Similarly ripe and full-flavoured on the palate with blackberry and plum notes. Soft tannins and spice on the finish.
The hand-picked grapes are sourced from selected vineyards in the Dao region south of the Douro Valley, where old vines are tended traditionally in granite soil.
Fermentation in stainless steel vats controlled at 30 degrees with maceration on the skins for 10 days in total. The wine is then matured for 6 months in 300 litre French oak barrels.
Goes well with grilled beef or lamb or robust stew. For a veggie alternative try with spinach and lentil casserole.
