Winemaking:
Made exclusively from organically grown grapes from the Symington family’s Assares, Ataíde and Canada vineyards in the remote Vilariça Valley, (located in the far northeastern corner of the Douro Demarcated Region, close to the Spanish border). Hot, dry summers alternate with very cold winters. The age of the vines ranges from 25 to 30 years and the vineyards obtained full organic certification in 2006 (Assares) - although organically farmed since 2002 - and 2010 (Ataíde and Canada). The grapes were manually sorted with great care. Fermented in stainless steel vats using full temperature control (between 25 and 26ºC) with prolonged maceration through pumping over. Aging Ten months in French oak barrels.

Grape Varieties:
Tinta Barroca,Touriga Nacional,Tinta Roriz,Touriga Franca

Tasting Notes:
A full, generous wine that reflects the singularity of the Vilariça Valley terroir and expresses the purity of flavours of the organic vineyard management, which accentuates its genuine, natural character.

Store and Serve Advices:
Ready to drink now although it will benefit from some further bottle-ageing. Given it’s full structure and fine acidity, it will develop very favourably in bottle for another 2 to 3 years.

Food Pairing:
An excellent wine to match with a wide range of international spiced foods or everyday pasta-based dishes and casual meals such as tapas.
