VINIFICATION
Harvested by hand at the optimum time, the grapes are then destemmed, crushed and vinied in accordance to a process of careful maceration to extract their color, tannins and aromas, complemented by permanent churning during fermentation. This process takes place in vats, at a controlled temperature between 28-30°C, until reaching the desired Baume degree. At this stage, grape brandy is added (fortication). This is an exceptional wine, from a single harvest, bottled between the second and third year after the harvest. It is deep-red in colour, complex, full-bodied and with a remarkable ageing potential. 


TASTING NOTES

Deep dark colour with violet hues. It shows a splendid nose, with oral aromas, menthol and black fruit (blueberries) and notes of smoke. In the mouth it displays assertive acidity, much in the style of Casa Kopke, well combined with intense tannins. Delicate fresh fruit developing into a long and compelling nish, foreseeing great ageing potential. 


PAIRING

Pair it with a main course of red meat or game. Blue or soft cheese (such as Serra da Estrela) are equally well suited. This unique wine's exceptional quality means it's best enjoyed on its own or with a cigar. 


VINE
The rows of vines are traditionally planted across the slope in horizontal terraces. More recently vines have been planted up the slope (called “vinha ao alto”, meaning vertically planted).
