Attractive and intense violet colour. Fresh and delicate nose, where notes of wild fruit are combined with balsamic notes of eucalyptus and mint. On the palate it is velvet, soft and structu- red, integrating the steam of the wild fruit with a long and delicious finish.

Vinification

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 from one single harvest, bottled 4 to 6 years after harvest.

Wine LBV

Traditional Douro grape varie- ties, in particular Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz and Sousão.

The vineyard is disposed along the slopes on horizontal levels and, more recently, they are planted along the lines of greatest slopes, so called “Vinha ao Alto” (vertically planted vines).

Schistous-sandstone (greywacke), interspersed with granite in some places.

Up to 600 meters.
