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, while maintaining it’s freshness, thanks to it’ s ability to maintain it’s natural acidity.

Grape varieties: 100% Petit Verdot.

Winemaking: 100% Petit Verdot 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 used French oak barrels.

Barrel aging: 12 months in French oak (100%)

Grown, produced and bottled on the family estate.
