17.5 points Grandes Escolhas

A blend of two emblematic Dão grape varieties, in a classic combination where Touriga Nacional reveals its full potential, with its softly floral and fruity components, and its lush and dense structure in the mouth, refreshed by the fluidity and delicacy of Alfrocheiro. A set in which the notes of French oak wood where it aged are very well integrated.

A very beautiful floral in the first aromatic impact, intertwined with blackberry, cherry and blueberry, sprinkled with fine spice. Still very young, but already with complexity and the promise of a long evolution in the bottle. Fantastic balance in the mouth, bright acidity and finesse from start to finish, lasting on the palate.

Winemaking: Manual harvesting in 15 kg boxes. Manual selection of grapes on a sorting mat. After stemming and crushing, the different varieties are vinified individually in stainless steel vats at controlled temperatures, with maceration being considered appropriate to their characteristics. After malolactic fermentation, part of the batch aged in French oak barrels for around 20 months, and the remainder in stainless steel vats.
