6 months in new and used French oak barrels, fermented and aged with fine lees stirred batonnage. / Grapes from old vines of the following varieties: Síria, Fonte Cal and Rabo de Ovelha. / Granite and schist soils with quartz veins.
Winemaker’s Notes: The grapes for this wine are tasted on the vineyards several times before harvesting, in order to obtain the best from each variety of old vines, thereby creating a balance between them. Very intense and mineral, citrus and floral hints blend well balanced)with the aromas from barrel fermentation. Creamy and thick on the palate with a very fresh, long finish. The soul of this wine lies in the unique combination of the Síria, Fonte Cal and Rabo de Ovelha grape varieties, from very old vines planted in granite and schist soils with quartz veins, in the Douro River’s hydrographical basin, at an average altitude of 700 metres above sea level.
Serve with intense, full-fat cheeses, fish stews, baked fatty fish.
