O Produtor, tasting note published in June 14th 2020

The wine’s nose is very fresh and intense with notes of wild black fruits and berries, and the very marked fresh floral notes typical of Touriga Nacional. In the mouth, the wine is concentrated, hot, showing elegant
but firm tannins. It has a very persistent finish, traditional from the Douro Superior. This wine pairs well with roasted meats and cheeses.

CARM

The wine is vinified in the cellar of our Quinta das Marvalhas in Almendra, in the heart of Douro Superior. Our winery is equipped with the
latest technology and enables complete control of temperature, essential for our region of extreme climates. After grapes arrive at the winery, we eliminate clusters which are not in perfect condition. After total destemming, the grapes are crushed softly and pass through a thermal shock, followed by a period of cold prefermentative maceration of about 12 to 24 hours. The must is transferred to broad and low fermentation stainless steel vats, where the maceration occurs for 8 days at 22ºC. 12 Months in extra fine grain French oak barrels (225L)
