Harvest 2014

Winter rainfall was plentiful, followed by an excellent summer growing season, mild for Alentejan
standards. An early harvest with a rapid end, due to the early arrival of September rains.



Vinification

Sustainably grown in our own vineyards located just 3 km of the rugged Alentejan Atlantic Coast the cool maritime climate is further moderated by the early morning fog created by River Mira on which margins the vines are planted on. This cool maritime climate provides ideal conditions for growing high quality Pinot Noir grapes.

The grapes were picked on the same day but fermented in two separate lots, one at higher temperatures and with extended skin maceration in order to bring out colour and tannin and the
other at lower temperatures with a shorter time on skins to yield a more aromatic and elegant wine.

Both components were aged separately for 8 months in old french oak before blending and bottling in July 2015.



Our Winemaker's Comments

Some red berry perfume combined with gamey, earthy notes. A sweet, juicy palate, savoury, elegant, nicely balanced with good structure and a long finish.
