Tasting notes

Deep red coloured with intense and elegant aroma dominated by ripe black fruits like blackberries, prune and blackcurrant, also showing balsamic aromas of "esteva" resin and floral violet notes . Full bodied with great structure, well balanced acidity, with firm ripe and well integrated tannins. These characteristics make for a very persistent, harmonious and elegant finish. A wine with great ageing potential.

Winemaking

Pre-fermentative maceration at controlled temperature of 10-12ºC. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel lagares (troughs) with robotized treading at controlled temperature not exceeding 30ºC, in order to obtain the greatest extraction possible of skin constituents. The aromatic intensity and elegance originate from the grape varieties Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional, as well as from many other noble varieties originating from centenary Douro vineyards. Tinta Roriz and Souzão grape varieties give an important contribution to structure, concentration and persistence. In order to enhance the quality and the desired wine profile, a strict selection of spirits has taken place and marks the difference through its organoleptic elegance. The various aromas together with the strong extraction have originated the intensity and elegance of a Vintage wine.

Ageing

Maturation/”élevage” in oak barrels. Racking, analysis and regular tastings take place during this period in order to follow closely the evolution of the wine and define the final blend.
