Winemaking:
Raul Perez is part of the new generation of Spanish winemakers, his passion for wines goes beyond the wines he produces or the regions he knows. He is a great admirer of Portugal and its wines, with him, we shared opinions, bottles and a common interest in a permanent search for something different. Ultreia is the result of that search, his vision of the Douro valley, the same way Ladredo is our vision of Ribera Sacra. After one day travelling around Douro, Raul chose two vineyards in two distinct areas, one in Têdo river valley and the other in Covas valley. 2008 was an excellent year for the Douro wine region. Rain, during spring and beginning of summer, allowed the soil to maintain good water levels until harvest. On another hand, low yields, due mainly, to rain during flowering season, were very important to obtain quality fruit with great acidity and balanced sugar contents. Cold nights were determinant to achieve a fresh fruit character present in all the wines. Both vineyards were harvested on the 25th of September and stayed 3 days in a cold room at 3°C. The fermentation was in open wooden vat with 25% stems, and a total skin contact of 40 days. The wine aged 12 months in French oak barrel where malolactic fermentation occurred.

88 pts Robert Parker - Deep garnet colour. Very aromatic with notes of blueberries and blackberries Full-bodied and concentrated but very fresh with ripe and round tannins. As on the nose, very scented with the same notes of blueberries and blackberries. Very long lingering finish.
