One of the ‘noble’ Bordeaux varieties. A late ripener, it is better suited for warmer climates, like Alentejo, where it can reach a good maturity, resulting in wines of intense concentration and color, strong tannins and aromatic complexity.

Grape variety: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Tasting Note: Displaying characteristic aromas of mint, bell pepper and blackcurrant it is elegant and intensely flavoured with sweet fruit and well structured and well integrated grainy tannins.

Vinification: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grown sustainably on the ancient clay over limestone soils in own vineyards surrounding our estate in Vidigueira. This single parcel was harvested separately according to ripeness. The fruit was destemmed and gently crushed, following fermentation under temperature control for 2 weeks in stainless steel tanks, with gentle punchdowns, pumpovers and delestage. The wine matured for 12 months in French oak barrels.

Barrel ageing: 12 months in French Oak.

Grown, produced and bottled at the family estate.
