GRAPE VARIETIES ›Touriga Nacional, Alicante Bouschet and Aragonez The Alicante Bouschet and Aragonez grape varieties are conducted in a vertical monoplane and Touriga Nacional in LYS, a multi-spatial system with a large exposed leaf surface. The lines are oriented East-West and the grape varieties have varied exposure: Alicante Bouschet and Aragonez (west) and Touriga Nacional (east). VINIFICATION ›Manual harvest in 12 kg boxes, on 6 September for Aragonez, 21 September for Alicante Bouschet and 19 September for Touriga Nacional. After passing through the cold chamber, the grapes were subjected to a careful selection on a vibrating mat, followed by total destemming and very light crushing of the berry. The fermentation of the grape varieties occurred together (cofermentation), in a French oak vat, at controlled temperatures, by indigenous yeasts for a period of 12 days. INTERNSHIP ›Aging in French oak barrels, for a period of 14 months. Aged in bottle for a period of six months. TASTING NOTE ›Deep and vivid ruby color. Nose with black and spicy fruit resulting from the barrel aging. Firm and silky tannins that allow it to evolve well in the bottle.
