Sometimes you have to give it time. Wait for the right time. A special reason, the perfect company, an unrepeatable moment. Because a wine that has been prepared with such care to present itself at its best deserves to be enjoyed with the same calm. In a slow ritual, aromas are released and flavors are revealed in an endless number of sensations. It's a world in a bottle. The world of those looking for the authentic and the best that Dão has to offer.


The grapes were harvested by variety and by plot and vinified separately. Upon reaching the winery, the grapes were unloaded from 20 kg boxes directly into the destemmer-crusher, falling by gravity into small stainless steel vats. The alcoholic fermentation took place in about 8 days, at an average temperature of 28ºC, with the Touriga Nacional being in post-fermentation maceration.


After alcoholic fermentation, malolactic fermentation took place in stainless steel vats. This wine was aged for 12 months in new and used French oak barrels. The wine was subjected to light fining and filtration before bottling. In order to preserve its highest quality, it was bottled without cold stabilization.

Tasting This wine has a deep ruby red color. On the nose there are notes of black fruit and wild fruit, resinous nuances, aromas of forest, moss, pine, "sous-bois" and a very fresh menthol touch. In the mouth it has a firm and defined attack, with the tannic structure immediately appearing, but with polished tannins, in a fresh and enveloping body. The aromatic complexity is confirmed in the mouth complemented with some floral touches.
Harmonization It is a wine that invites you to the table, it is very gastronomic. I advise it to be drunk with an octopus à lagareiro, or an oven-roasted pork neck.
