50% Touriga Nacional and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Both with character and personality, one floral and elegant, the other powerful and full of texture. They don’t come from the same place and joining them was highly improbable. But it was given the necessary time to meet for 18 months in fine french oak barrels. The result, like all encounters is complice, unique, an aroma explosion... an “Explosion d’Amour!!”.
Concentrated ruby color, exhuberant nose, rich, warm and lickerish. Intense and textured full mouth attack. A sensation explosion, a....Love Explosion.

Store at 12-14ºC and serve at 16ºC.
Grapes develop and mature in the hot and dry Mediterranean climate of the southern Portuguese plateau. The cool nights serve to retain acidity. Soils are infertile rocky schists, producing naturally low yields of concentrated, healthy fruit.
Production follows the protocols of sustainable agriculture with yields being controlled for top quality by hard
pruning, removal of secondary shoots, and bunch thinning. At optimum maturity the grapes are hand-picked in small boxes permitting the quality control operations of bunch selection in the vineyard and on the sorting table.
After sorting and crushing the grapes are conveyed by gravity into small vats and fermented by only indigenous yeast at 27ºC. Post fermentation maceration lasts for 21 days. The wine is matured for 18 months in French oak barrels.
