O Produtor, tasting note published in March 20th 2022

The grapes that gave rise to this wine were vinified together; my goal was to harvest the various grape varieties in different plots at the time I thought the result would be best to produce a wine for aging. Great concentration, very fresh, the blend resulted in a highly complex aroma where barrel notes harmoniously combine, adding complexity to the whole – spices, black fruits, licorice, and violets in perfect harmony. Complexity, a highly concentrated and structured aroma.

With the Beyra project, we were pioneers in the concept of High Altitude Wines. In Vermiosa, amidst the highest vineyards in Portugal, I returned to my roots in the same winery where I conducted my first harvest.” – Rui Roboredo Madeira

The main benefit of viticulture at high altitudes is attributed to the cooler climate, allowing for an increase in acidity levels achieved through thermal fluctuations between day and night. The cool nights lead to slower and more uniform grape ripening, enhancing the concentration of aromas and flavors. During the day, increased radiation due to the proximity of the sun aids in photosynthesis, resulting in improved color and an appropriate alcohol content.

Origin: Beyra Vinhas Velhas Tinto 2021 originates from old vines planted in clay-schist soil around the village of Vermiosa in Figueira de Castelo Rodrigo, at an altitude exceeding 700 meters. The grape varieties are mixed in the vineyard, with Mourisco and Tinta Roriz predominating, along with small quantities of Borrão, Tinta Amarela, and Rufete.

Vinification and aging: The grapes are hand-harvested. Natural fermentation with indigenous yeasts in cement tanks. Aging for 12 months in French oak barrels.

Rui Roboredo Madeira Vinhos

In one of the most remote areas of the Iberian Peninsula, on the border between the Douro Superior and Beira Alta regions, it was among family that its passion grew for the aromas and smells of this land that shapes our character.
After coming into contact with many cultures of living and making wine, in various parts of the globe, Rui Madeira returned to the great Douro valley convinced that they have the potential to make the best wines in the world.
 Out of respect for nature, due to the way we cultivate their vineyards and wines reflect his experiences, which smell and taste of land, of schist, damp granite, rock rose, wild flowers and fruit. 
It is in the winery that he makes wines with the character of our ‘terroir’, expressed through native grape varieties, which instil with a style of their own and an international profile.
