Vinification

After fully stalked and crushed, grapes are fermented in inox vat and lagares, allowing quality constituents presents in the ripe grapes film, softly pass to the wine. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged in new and used french oak barrels of 400 liters for about 12 months.

Tasting

Deep purple.

Very complex and distinct flavours, where fruity and floral nature predominates with spicy notes, black pepper notes coming from the wood are well integrated and balanced with the wine.

Balanced acidity, fruity notes, very good structure with great tannins. Long finishing with a great balance. This combination contributes to ageing potential, so the wine will benefit with some years in the bottle.
