This is the ultimate expression of terroir in the Douro, produced from our principal estate.
The 2012 has tremendous aromatic intensity and formidable structure – a direct result of the tiny but immensely concentrated crop.
The second driest year in the Douro Valley since 1967 resulted in some of the lowest yields ever recorded.
An elegant floral nose with aromas of red cherries, liquorice, mint, bergamot and orange blossom. On the palate there is very fine purity of fruit and a velvety texture. This wine has ripe tannins and a well-structured minerality, combined with fresh acidity showing through on the well-defined finish.
