Vinification Method

Classic fermentation method with destemming and pre fermentative skin contact followed of the application of dry yeasts. and . Fermentation up to 30º C in the first 2/3, and lowering down to 20º C during the last 1/3.. During the whole fermentative process, pumping over 2 times per day, using each time half of the volume contained in the vat. After the alcoholic fermentation, the cap is plunged for 30 days, and during that period, extraction of the gentle tannins is conducted, along with the malolactic fermentation and the natural stabilization of the wine.


Wine is aged in French of Allier oak barrels of 225 Lt for 6 months. Ageing of 3 months in bottle after bottling.

Tasting Notes

A wine of intense aromas and flavours. The palate is superbly balanced with youthful, rich fruit and fines tannins. Soft yet spicy cassis fruit has been seasoned with cedar notes from subtle oak ageing. The finish is long, tasty and extremely persistent. João Paulo Martins; Vinhos de Portugal 2016; "Tasted in 2014. Very good aromatic presence, with spicy notes of black fruit of the Cabernet plus very mature notes, everything alive but with weight and still very dark, telling us that needs time. Good mouth tasting, fresh and gentle tannins, is a fine example of the grape variety, mature and full. Very interesting."

How to Serve

Excellent by itself or with any full flavoured dishes especially with red meat at the temperature of 16 – 18ºC.
