This is the ultimate expression of terroir in the Douro, produced from our principal estate.
A wine that surpassed all expectations against the odds.
An unusual year in the Douro, with the highest rainfall in August for 104 years. As a result, picking was delayed by 10 days to allow grapes to ripen, and the quality of the wines made surpassed all expectations.
A lovely complex nose with excellent sweet and rich fruit aromas such as black cherry, black currant, and blackberry. On the palate it is packed with solid, structured, rich, and intense black fruit flavours and an admirably long finish.
