David Baverstock and Luís Patrão
Manual harvesting, selection of bunches on the sorting table, destemming, crushing, primary fermentation with natural yeasts and temperature control (25º-28ºC) in stepped granite mills, followed by basket pressing. Aging in French oak barrels used for 12 months.
Intense with shades of violet. Very high and complex aroma, with ripe red fruits, balsamic notes characteristic of old vines and spicy barrel notes. Great balance and elegance, with fine integrated tannins and balancing acidity. Long and persistent finish, with the potential for great longevity in the bottle.
