Concept: This single estate wine has its origin in a unique vineyard locate in the mountains of Serra da Penha, at an altitude
of 650 mts, growing in very poor granitic and quartz soils.The grape varieties Touriga Nacional, Alicante Bouschet
and Cabernet Sauvignon, were stemmed and vinificate in small wine presses in contact with the skins of the
grapes, originating a wine of great intensity and vigour.

Vinification: The grapes are handpicked directly to 20 kgs crates, then totally destemmed. Fermentation occurs in stainless
steel vats and winepress with controlled temperature at 25ºC. Maceration is post fermentation. Malolactic
fermentation is made in stainless steel vats.

Tasting Notes: Elegant and fragrant nose with notes of cassis, red pepper and cocoa. Fine vegetable hints to give freshness. Fresh and full-bodied mouth with firm but fine tannins. Mineral and fresh character that will develop very well with
some bottle time.

Food Suggestions: Stews, roasted meat (pork or beed), traditional dishes, such as "Feijoada", "Cozido à Portuguesa" or "Chanfana".
