Winemaking:
The grapes are hand picked for small baskets; they originate from a single harvest and the winemaking is according to the traditional way to make Port Wine. After a partial stripe of the grapes, the grapes are trod by foot in old stone lagares”. The fermentation occurs with temperature control, being stopped by adding brandy (firewater). This wine as it is made, has very big aging potential. If stored under the ideal conditions, has an aging potential in the bottle of over 30 years.

Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela, Sousão, Tinta Barroca, Tinto Cão

Tasting Notes:

Store and Serve Advices:
One should keep the bottled on the horizontal position, at a constant temperature and away from intense direct light. As the wine ages in the bottle, with time it may form some natural sediment in the bottle, so it should be carefully opened and decanted, before being served. Unfiltered wine; once the bottle is opened it should be consumed in the same day, as any wine of kept. After the decantation process, the wine will open and will reach its peak, next it will gradually loose its freshness, changing the tasting notes.. Should be consumed at a temperature between 16º C to 18º C.

Food Pairing:
Goes very well with strong cheeses such as Stilton, Roquefort, Danish blue, Portuguese Serra, among others. It can also be served with fruit or chocolate desserts, or eventually a good cigar.
