Exquisite aromatic freshness with wild berries and a clear floral aroma, showing some hints of thyme and pine needle. The palate is both silky and large, with exceptionally polished tannins and a remarkable freshness that enhances the cherry and black plum flavours, as well as hints of fine clover. The presence of oak is perfectly integrated, giving a precise shape to the simultaneously assertive and charming structure of the wine. Grapes: 56 % Touriga Franca, 41 % Touriga Nacional, 3% Tinta Amarela

Sweetness: Dry

2017 was the second driest year on record in the Douro and the hottest of the last four decades. For the vegetative cycle of the vine, the accumulated deficit of rainfall, between March and September, was of approximately 50%. The dry, mild winter was followed by an equally dry Spring with temperatures 2.6ºC above the season average. Despite the lack of rain, the region’s grape varieties responded well, adapting early on to the exceptionally dry conditions that prevailed since the beginning of the year. The advanced vegetative cycle resulted in the earliest harvest ever recorded, beginning in Vesuvio on September 3rd. Fortunately, the heat slowed down during the month (especially night temperatures), a very beneficial situation that was reflected in the excellent quality of the grapes received in the winery.
