The Peninsula de Setúbal region is characterized by a climate with great conditions: the soil is pozolitic and sandy, rich in water, with influences from the proximity of the Atlantic sea. This perfect harmony gives us marvelous quality wines.
Its garnet color presents youth and does the pronounced intense, baked dark fruits, blackberry, plum, prunes and cherry, almost jam on the nose. And when it reaches the mouth is pure velvet, nice smokey flavor with fruits and notes of chocolate.
Medium to high tannins, medium acidity, heavier body. But there is an excellent balance between the tannins, fruits, oak and other aromas.
Medium finish with a long taste of vanilla.
Quite young wine although will even improve over the next years.
Winemaking: alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel vats at controlled temperature followed by prolonged skin maceration. Aged in French and American oak barrels.
This is a fairly concentrated wine, a powerful red, with 14% of alcohol content, but really enjoyable!
Pairing well with red meats, game or bbq.
Serve on 18 °C temperature.
