After a gentle crushing without destemming, foot trodden in traditional stone mill where at regular intervals. Subsequently wine spirits were added, stopping the fermentation. Quinta do Crasto Porto Vintage 2015 staged in Portuguese oak barrels, where it remained for about 2 years. It was bottled, without any glue or filtration, being subject to create a slight deposit during its aging in bottle.
Opaque color. Excellent concentration and aromatic depth, where outstanding notes of ripe wild fruits, spice and soft spice stand out. Harmonious start, progressively evolved to a wine of great volume and concentration, composed by fresh tannins of firm texture and very compact. It finishes fresh, long and elegant, with a remarkable aromatic explosion of very mature wild fruits in perfect harmony with notes of esteva. All in perfect balance, which predicts a high potential for aging in the bottle.
