This wine is made from a mixture of fruit from the Quinta dos Carvalhais estate and grapes bought-in from carefully selected growers who adhere to sustainable practices. The estate vineyards are planted on poor granite soils with indigenous Dão varieties. The vines are grown at an altitude of 465-500 metres above sea level and cool nights counteract the warmth of the days, ensuring that the grapes undergo a slow ripening process and retain a fresh acidity whilst accumulating concentrated varietal aromas.The grapes were destemmed and then gently crushed before being transferred to temperature-controlled stainless steel fermentation vats. Fermentation lasted around six days, during which time several pump overs took place in order to gently extract aromas and phenolic compounds from the skins. After fermentation, the wine was transferred to ageing vats and the solids gently pressed in pneumatic presses. The different varieties were vinified separately. 20% of the final blend was aged for six months in French oak, while the rest of the wine remained in stainless steel tanks.

Tasting Note

This wine is deep ruby red in colour, with aromas of strawberries, blackberries and ripe raspberries, as well as balsamic and herbal nuances. The palate is ripe and smooth, with freshness provided by balanced acidity and a minty character. The tannins give structure and personality to this wine, which is well balanced and long.
