O Produtor, tasting note published in September 27th 2020
Very deep red in colour, it has intense aromas dominated by fruit notes such as plum jam, cherry and spices. In the mouth it is dense, enveloping, with well marked acidity, structured and persistent. Note in this dry and hot year, the natural acidity that this "terroir" provides in the maturation and composition of the wines obtaining an excellent balance.
In this 2017 harvest, we selected the grapes from the Pinheiro Ramudo vineyard, harvested in the third week of September. The classic vinification of guard red wines was followed by a 10-month ageing in French oak barrels. The year 2017 was characterised by being globally late, with moderate temperatures and great day-night thermal amplitudes during the maturation period, which allowed a perfect maturation resulting in a full-bodied and aromatically exuberant profile. It shows good acidity and a structure supported by soft tannins so characteristic of the Syrah’s of the Poceirão sands. Limited to existing stock. In case the wine you bought is out of stock, we will contact you to propose a different wine, or to return the amount paid. Promotions on wines cannot be combined with other discounts or coupons.
