Tasting Notes

A fine, full-flavoured classic port, with rich coffee/chocolaty flavours and complex structure.

Ageing Potential

Well balanced tannins and acid a complied by warm alcohol will give this wine great ageing ability for 20 years plus.

Blend Information

Touriga Nacional, Tinta Barocca, Tinta Amarella, Tinta Roriz, Souzoa

Food Suggestions

Great pair mates with most baked dessert or in a sauce over ice cream, great on its own or with well matured cheese.

In The Vineyard

2-wire trellis on poor, well-drained soil.

About The Harvest

Picked at 25.5° Balling.

In The Cellar

Bunches are destemmed, crushed and rapidly cooled in a open fermenter. Grapes are left to spontaneously start fermenting after which at the desired sugar the fermentation is stopped by adding alcohol to the must. Skins are the pressed and the wine is matured in 12 months in concrete tanks before it matures another 10 months in 30 to 40 year old small 300liter barrels.
