O Produtor, tasting note published in June 8th 2020

Deep violet colour, it presents aromas of wild berries, in perfect harmony with fresh notes of wood and fine spices. In the mouth, it starts in an elegant way, evolving into a wine of excellent volume and solid structure.

Quinta de Lubazim

D. João I granted João Gomes the Lordship of Lubazim, in Alto Douro, for his deeds in the battle of Aljubarrota in 1385; his daughter came to marry Gonçalo Vaz de Castro, grandson of the Lord Mayor of the King. Quinta de Lubazim has remained in the possession of the Castros until today. The grapes that gave origin to this wine come from this Quinta, which has different exposures, south, east and west. Vinification: the grapes are hand-harvested into 25 kilo boxes at their ideal point of ripeness; they are intended to show a vigorous ripeness, leading to greater aromatic and polyphenolic concentrations. After gentle crushing and total destemming, the grapes are fermented in vats, with the aim of ensuring that the quality constituents present in the skins of ripe grapes pass smoothly into the wine.
Ageing: after the malolactic fermentation, the wine aged for about 11 months in second and third year French oak barrels of 300 and 400 litres.
