The hardest thing to deal with is the overwhelming choice, Just Buy & Try - Great fun trying new wines without breaking the bank. Great service, delivery to your door and great prices, what's not to like? I have already had 3 deliverys and all the wines and Port have been really nice. I highly recommend you give it a try!

Winemaking:
Grape origins from Quinta de Roriz, picking between September 9th and October 5th. Quinta da Perdiz, picking started September 23rd, and ended October 5th. Manual triage is undertaken on a sorting table after which the grapes are de-stemmed before passing through a second berry-by-berry mechanical selection, prior to being gently crushed. The grapes are then relayed to the fermentation vats, and once in the vats they are inoculated with a specially selected yeast culture and fermentation taking place around 25ºC. Maceration is very gentle and adjusted in such a way as to produce a wine intended for earlier drinking, nevertheless, with a great ability to mature in bottle. Ageing 13 months in French oak barrels of 400 L.

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

Tasting Notes:

Store and Serve Advices:
Ready for drinking now, although it has the ageing potential to develop further in bottle for a few more years.
