Tasting Notes

Purplish in colour, recalling paint. Powerful and intense aromas of black fruit and cherry with charming notes of an aromatic fragrance. To the mouth, this wine proves in perfect harmony, with a striking balance in the fruit and tannins. Rich, elegant and delicious flavours of black fruit. Enormous concentration and once again displaying this attractive perfumed quality. Long and intense aftertaste.

Service and Harmonization

Goes particularly well with cheeses such as Serra, Stilton, Gorgonzola and other fatty examples. Ideal to accompany sweet deserts and rich in fruit preserve flavours.  Decant and serve at 17º - 18ºC.

Technical File

Location DO Porto
Oenologists Oenologist Luís Leocádio
Vineyard Vineyard plots located on the steep slopes of River Pinhão banks, between 150m and 400m altitude, with a poor and rugged shale soil of low production and high concentration and grape quality.
Grape Harvest Dry winter with 40% less rainfall than the average. Warm February and March followed by rain in April and May. Some rain from June to August. Slow to mature: harvesting delayed by two weeks. Temperatures in September up to around 40º.
Varieties Traditional Douro varieties
Winemaking Fresh grapes and at their ideal ripeness are picked by hand into 20 kg boxes. Following the removal of the stalk and smooth crushing, the grapes were placed in a stainless steel cube for 5 days of pellicular maceration, fermenting for five days, with three daily delestage processes before continuing to macerate following fortification for a further three days. This resulted in an excellent wine extract. Then aged in old French balseiros (vats). Blending was done in March 2003.
