Identity

A wine that expresses the singular character of the Alentejo region through a blend of three traditional varietals growing in top vineyards sites and hand-made with minimal intervention in the winery.

Winemakers Notes

Deep ruby-violet, with a generous aroma of warm red fruits, discreet notes of a toast and spice and a refreshing touch of eucalyptus. Mouth-filling, ripe and refreshing. Serve at 16ºC with well flavored grilled red meats.

Terroir

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.

Vineyard Management

Production follows a protocol of sustainable agriculture and yield is controlled and quality improved by hard pruning, removal of secondary shoots, and bunch thinning. At optium maturity the grapes are handpicked in small boxes permiting the quality-control steps of bunch selection in the vineyard and on the sorting table.

Vinification

After sorting and crushing, the grapes are conveyed by gravity into small vats and fermented a 27ºC by only indigenous yeast. Post fermentation maceration lasts for 15 days. 50% of the wine is matured in second and third year Frech oak barrels for 9 months.

Alcohol

14,5% Vol.
