Crystal-clear, crimson-coloured wine, with a nose full of ripe fruit, mellowand medium-bodied on the palate.
- Winemaker: Rui Veladas
- Winemaking: Grapes hand-picked by our growers are unloaded and immediately de-stemmed and crushed. The addition of choice yeast initiates fermentation at controlled temperatures (28ºC). The maceration, or joint fermentation of grapes and skins, occurs during this period through a cyclical upward pumping of the must at the bottom of the vats for the purpose of obtaining a greater extraction of colours and tannins (responsible for the body of the wine). This maceration process continues for around five days, while the fermentation proceeds until all the sugar has been converted into alcohol. There follows the malolactic "fermentation" basic to the mellowing of our wines. The wine ages in vats and is stabilized and filtered prior to bottling, which takes place within one year.
- Grape Varieties: Castelão, Aragonês, Moreto, Trincadeira.
- Food Pairing: A fine accompaniment to roasts and cheeses.
- Store and Serve Advices: Should be drunk at a temperature of 14º-16ºC.”
