PretaClimate: Warm days and very cold nightsVineyard Locations: Near the Alentejo villages of Bencatel andFronteiraSoil Types: Very poor of schist or granitic originVarieties: 50% Touriga Nacional, 35% Alicante Bouschet and 15% Cabernet SauvignonAgeing: 18 months in French oak barrels, 50% new and 50% one year oldAlcohol: 14,5 % in VolumeLaunch Date: June 2009Storage: Cellar at between 16ºC and 18ºCViticulture and WinemakingAll bunches entering the winery are passed over a sorting table and subjected to intensive quality control. The grapes are gently crushed and moved by gravity into temperature regulated vats. Both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation occurred naturally with no inoculation. The post fermentation maceration on skins lasted for 28 days. Fining was with egg whites. This wine is a natural product that was lightly filtered and may cast a deposit over timeFood pairing: Enjoy with roasted, slightly caramelized red meat or game with black fruit jelly. Match also with a powerful Portuguese cheese from Azeitão or a traditional Roquefort.Winemaker´s NotesConcentrated dark violet color. Generous nose with very intense aroma of crushed blackberries and blueberries, floral scent and a subtle touch of toasted almond barrel notes. The mouth-feel is full with very ripe firm tannins. Good acidity and a sustained finish.Viticulture: David BoothWinemaking: António Maçanita
