Winemaking:
From the 4 hectares of vine, only 4 barrels were selected to make thus were made of this wine of exceptional quality. Wine maker, Jorge Moreira, only intends to make this wine in truly exceptional years. The last time was in 2005 and we will not be making another Vale do Inferno for at least the next two years. Vale do Inferno boasts some of the highest and most impressive dry stone terrace walls in the Douro. With its prime position, sitting just above the Douro River, this four hectare vineyard was built by Sophia’s great grandfather, Albert Feueheerd, just before the First World War. The name Vale do Inferno originates from the intense heat that comes from the reflection of the suns rays off the terrace walls. As a result, the vineyard’s fruit is always highly concentrated and powerful. Vale do Inferno was replanted in 2006 and is beginning to produce some excellent grapes. The wine was first trodden by foot in granite lagares and then fermented in small stainless steel vats. Matured in French oak casks, before being bottled in July 2017.

Grape Varieties:
Touriga Nacional,Sousão

Tasting Notes:
Similar but more intense than the La Rosa Reserve, the Vale do Inferno Reserve has a profound, opaque colour which immediately shows the intensity of the originating vineyard. A wine with deep, rich and exuberant aromas and with mysterious, dark black fruit, mainly blackberry and plum, together with fresh violets and a lightly toasted, slightly smokey flavour. On the palate the wine is very generous and seductive, full of structure. It has enormous concentration but at the same time is full of freshness and liveliness. The Vale do Inferno Reserve is a Douro wine of great quality with potential to age well in the bottle. It is a very serious wine – one that is impossible not to enjoy and appreciate!

Store and Serve Advices:
Best served at a temperature between 17 º C and 19 º C.

Food Pairing:
Goes well with spicy grilled and roasted meats, game, and cheeses, among other delicacies.
