Their auspicious Touriga vines are a recent newcomer, purposefully planted to face the east, sheltering grapes from afternoon heat and direct sunlight. Fruit is harvested at lower sugar baumes, grapes are destemmed and crushed into open top fermenters for vinification at higher temperatures of at least 28°C. Batches are pumped over and plunged daily until fermented to dry, components are pressed and racked off gross lees to a selection of seasoned French oak hogsheads and puncheons. Alcohol 12.5%
Intense colour. Bouquet of sour cherries, geranium florals and a seasoning of richly piquant spice. A soft palate of sweet fruit flavours, ocean spray, cranberries and ribena, the savouryness of crushed autumn leaves and aromatic notes of turkish delight. Serve slightly chilled and match with olive bay leaf recipes, veal and light rustic fare.
