Hand-picked at the optimum time, the grapes are then destemmed, crushed and converted into wine through a process of careful maceration to extract their colour, tannins and aromas, enhanced by constant churning during fermentation. This takes place in vats (lagares) at a controlled temperature (between 28-30°C) until the right degree of sweetness (baumé) is achieved. At this point, grape brandy is added to create the final fortified wine. A wine of high quality, made by blending wines of different harvests to achieve the array of sensory qualities that are typical of these aged tawny Port wines. These wines have each matured in oak casks for varied periods of time, with the average age of all the wines
in the blend defining the age on the label. The resulting blend expresses the characteristics given by the ageing in wood.
An appealing golden colour, with a topaz rim. A powerful nose, with aromas of dried fruit, notes of wood and delicious hints of chocolate. On the palate, it is smooth and velvety. A wine of great intensity, with powerful tannins and sumptuous elegance. A long and engaging finish.
