Tasting notes

A Douro red wine with the characteristics of the old vines and mixed plantations, where red fruit aromas abound together with great complexity from the several vineyards selected for this wine. The tannins are round and velvety. Fresh on the mouth with a long and persistent finish, this wine is produced to be drunk upon release but will greatly benefit with time in the cellar.

Producer

AVELEDA, SA

Vinification and aging

All our grapes were foot trodden in lagares for 1 to 3 days before fermentation, and then fermented partially in lagar and partially in stainless steel tanks for 7 to 10 days at temperatures ranging from 22° to 27° Celsius, with manual pump overs. We then racked the resulting wines in French oak 225-liter casks from various coopers (Seguin Moreau, Taransaud, Nadalie, François Frères and Berthomieu), where they go through malolactic fermentation. All wines are then carefully aged for 21 months in barrels (100% one, two and three year old), keeping all different fermentations completely separate until the final blending takes place, just about one month before the bottling of the wines.
