The Details

In a Nutshell

A truly modern example of Douro light wine showcasing the fresh, vibrant fruit and fine, balanced structure that can be achieved with careful grape selection from some of the finest vineyards in the region.

Tasting Notes

This wine is deep ruby red in colour with violet nuances. It has a very intense aroma, dominated by floral notes of basil and rock rose, light menthol tones and notes of red fruits and apricot. On the palate, it has good body, well-integrated acidity, smooth tannins and red fruit notes. Its finish is elegant and balanced.

Production Notes

After gentle destemming and soft-crushing, the grapes were conveyed to stainless steel vats, where maceration of the skins and alcoholic fermentation took place. During this stage, the wine underwent gentle maceration at a controlled temperature. At the end of maceration, around 25% of the wine was aged in used French oak barrels with the remainder left in stainless steel tanks. The final blend is made eight months after harvest, and bottled after 12 months.
