Complex layers of fruit, long on the palate with solid tannins. This is the star of our range, only produced in limited quantities and in exceptional years. A full bodied blend of Aragonez, Syrah and other Portuguese varieties, barrel aged for 12 months in new oak barrels. The wine is finely structured, with a feeling of restrained power.
Made exclusively from selected 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 (80%) and American oak (20%) barrels, and then blended to give balanced varietal fruit and oak components. Bottled, unfined and filtered in April 2010.
A complex wine with a bouquet of spicy, red berry fruit, showing notes of tobacco and leather. The palate is both creamy and elegant with extremely fine tannins, good intensity and a firm persistent finish. Very stylish, will continue to improve in the bottle for up to 10 years.
