“Rich, big and extremely concentrated, with iodine, sweet blackberries, mussel shells, violet extract and dark chocolate. Lush and bittersweet on the unctuous, full-bodied palate, with plenty of dissipated tannins and deep flavors helping conceal the alcohol.” — James Suckling, Jun 2024

Wine Production

Pre-fermentative maceration at controlled temperature of 10-12ºC. Fermentation takes places in  stainless steel “lagares” (troughs) with robotized treading at controlled tempertures not exceeding 30ºC, in order to obtain the greatest extraction possible of skin constituents. In order to enhance the quality and the desired wine profile, a strict selection of sprits has taken place and marks the difference through its organoleptic elegance. Vintage Port represents the very best produce of a single outstanding year. It remains in vat for only about 2 years and then ages in bottle.
