This blend is very dark red, with crimson highlights. Aromas of balsamic, fig, black plum and hints of tobacco fill the nose. The palate shows great structure and a full-bodied firmness, with mature, silky tannins. Mineral notes mix with the aforementioned fruit, leading to a very elegant, complex and persistent finish.

The grapes from the old vineyards on the Estate (over 90 years old) were vinified in stainless steel, temperature controlled, remontage vats, holding up to 5,000 kilos of grapes. The chosen parcels of the 39 acres of the old vineyards were vinified separately, the fermentation lasting an average of 8 to 20 days. The grapes from the younger vineyards (Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca) were foot-trodden in “lagares” and part of this was vinified in stainless steel, temperature controlled, remontage vats. After malolactic fermentation, all the wines were racked into 225 litre French Oak barriques (60% new, 40% used), where they stayed for 18 months of aging.
Serve at room temperature with meats and game.
