VINEYARDS AND HARVEST NOTES
From our vineyards, some are over 85 years old, in Cima Côrgo, close to Pinhão we produce some of the best Portuguese varieties - Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca - and a blend of native grapes, some very rare. In 2017, the lack of rain and extreme heat that has been felt throughout the year, has forced us to a very demanding management of viticulture and check every week, sometimes day by day, to harvest at the right moment. The control of the of the phenolic maturation to obtain the maximum aromatic potential.

WINEMAKER’S NOTES
We have used the most modern technology with total control of the temperature. We eliminated the clusters that were not in perfect conditions. The grapes were vinified with total stalking followed by soft crushing with skin maceration for about 12 hours. After this period, in an inert atmosphere and in a pneumatic press, the careful pressing. A period of
clarification of the must of 24 to 48 hours depending on the variety and maturity. The alcoholic fermentation occurred in a controlled environment with temperature between 12°C and 14°C. The wines were kept in stainless steel vats, on fine lees until bottling in September 2018.

TASTING NOTES
Wine still young but with strong personality and elegance. Rich in primary aromas typical of the excellent native varieties of our "Terroir". Notes of wildflowers, blackberries and stems. Fresh fruit. Voluminous in the entrance, with medium high body and intense color. Tannins reactive but sensitive. Acidity balanced. A long finish, fresh and full of character. A DOC wine from old vineyards that thanks to its balance and concentration
will allow a long and positive bottle aging.
