Vinification

Made exclusively from selected Touriga Nacional grapes hand picked at optimum maturity from chosen sites in our own vineyards. Fermented without stems under temperature control, frequent delestage, followed by extended skin maceration to enhance varietal fruit characters, and to provide tannin structure and balance. Aged for 14 months in French oak barrels.

Our Winemaker's Comments

Complex aromatics showing some typical varietal floral notes along with hints of blueberries, plums and toasty oak. Elegant, silky, smooth palate with ripe juicy fruit, nicely balanced with mature but

Reviews

À peine dans le verre, ce 2008 surprend par sa couleur soutenue rappelant l’encre et par ses reflets pourpres. Les notes de résine, de pin, de fruits noirs et de cacao se mêlent dans un nez expressif et intense. Le palais est corsé, équilibré et généreux ; il exhibe un boisé élégant, signe d’une belle maturité. - 1000 Vins du Monde – Vinalies Internationales

Such a stylish wine, with its elegant perfumed fruit, fine tannins, acidity, blackberry flavors and a firm structure. This is a wine that could age, although it is certainly ready to drink. —
