This is the ultimate expression of terroir in the Douro, produced from our principal estate.
A structured, youthful wine with both great concentration and freshness.
The third dry year in succession with 38% less rain than normal. As a result, yields were down by as much as 50% at Malvedos – the smallest vintage in the Douro since 2000.
Deeply fragrant with bright, vivid kirsch and blackberry aromas. Full and seductive on the palate with layers of rich, succulent black fruit. Despite the powerful structure and concentration (reflecting the hot year) there is a bolt of freshness cutting through and accentuating the wine’s vitality and youthful profile.
