On arrival, the grapes proceeded to destemming and soft-crushing, the wine pulp drained by gravity into stainless steel tanks with automatic temperature controls and pumping over. Fermentation followed for around 6 days, during which time the wine was subject to pumping over in order to smoothly extract the aromas and phenolic compounds from the grape skins. At the end of fermentation, the wine was transferred to storage tanks.
An intense ruby colour with young tones. This wine's aroma has prominent floral notes of Touriga Nacional, as well as splashes of ripe red fruits, such as cherries and jammy plums. There are also shrubby, vegetal notes characteristic of Dão wines. Very balanced on the palate, this wine has good volume and is very drinkable. It also has an integrated acidity that invites a long and persistent finish.
