A blend of Touriga Nacional, Aragonez and Tinta Barroca that resulted in a very dark garnet coloured wine. On the nose, it reveals deep and well-defined aromas. In the mouth it is long and textured, with well-present tannins and a lively acidity that allows for a long, persistent and elegant finish.

João Barbosa is dedicated to making unique wines, the result of the specific terroirs of each plot of land where he cultivates his own vineyards. Wines with character, individuality and out of the norm.

“Obvious” and “easy” have no place in our company, where all the members of the family collaborate with total dedication to produce the best and most unique wine from our land, both in the Alentejo and the Tejo (regions).

The blue rose was chosen to symbolize our brands because it evokes unattainable perfection, a commitment to excellence, while at the same time taking great care to satisfy the large family we have created over the years of production.

These are wines originating from acidic soil, poor and loose- textured.

Mediterranean climate with influence from the Serra de São Mamede mountain range, high level of temperature variation, potential for concentrated acidity and long maturations.

Most of the vineyards benefit from southern exposure, and growing on granitic slopes, the plants are forced to compete with each other, creating a special balance.

Productions vary between three and four tons per hectare, and the grapes have complexity, delicacy and minerality.

The vineyards are planted on acidic, poor and fine-textured soils. Mediterranean climate influenced by the Serra de São Mamede, giving rise to large thermal amplitudes and thus a potential concentration of acidity and long maturation. Sun exposure favoured with most of the vineyard facing south planted on a slope of granite rocks.

A blend of Touriga Nacional, Tinta Barroca and Aragonez.

Cooling of the grapes, fermentation in stainless steel vats at a temperature of 25ºC, after skin maceration.
