An elegant balanced wine with the Touriga Nacional and Franca providing body and flavour supported by the structure and acidity of the Cabernet Sauvignon, together they provide a vibrant creamy texture. Deep ruby red in colour with aromas of ripe berry fruits with plum and blueberry notes.
Ruth says “Full bodied, ripe juicy berry fruit, tobacco, coffee and spice”
Co-fermentation of the grapes began in the wine presses, with foot treading at controlled temperatures (22 to 25ºC), finishing in concrete tanks.
Following malolactic fermentation, aging took place in the same concrete tanks for 6 months. The unique micro-oxygenation conditions provided by this type of tank aim to preserve the wine’s character.
