Description

The last fruit to be harvested from the vineyard. Hand-picked and destemmed together in a ‘field blend’ style retaining as many whole berries as possible. The first working of the must is with the feet as in a traditional lager in Portugal to extract tannins from both skins and seeds. Gentle pressing and maturation in old oak barrels for 10 months.

Varietals: 35% Touriga Naçional, 35% Tinta Cão, 12% Tinta Amarela, 7% Tinta Roriz, 6% Alvarelhão & 5% Sousão

Vines: Fruit was sourced from the 1990 New Territories planting of classic Portuguese grape varieties on a rocky terraced hillside.

Cellaring: Drinking beautifully at present and will continue to evolve for up to 8 years under suitable cellaring conditions.

Tasting Profile

Nose
Lavender, plum, and cardamom spices, mocha, and boot polish. Quite a busy nose! Ripe plums and licorice spice of Touriga Naçional, the Tinta Cão brings bright and fragrant blue fruit energy.
Palate
Tinta Roriz brings a savoury depth to the palate to compliment the Tinta Amarela’s floral and bay leaf herbal lift. To tie everything together the finesse of Alvarelhão and the acidity of the Sousão tightens, brightens, and drives the long palate. Wonderfully complex and yet medium-bodied.
