“This has no track record, but it seems to have the structure to age, maybe better than indicated. It’s fair to say this is an offbeat wine and thus hard to benchmark, but I liked it a lot.” [Mark Squires, Feb 2022]

PRODUCTION

375 ml / 1113 Bottles

IDENTITY

Late harvest wine with 151 g sugar/litre, made
from Touriga Nacional grapes naturally
dehydrated on the vines.

TASTING NOTES

Very deep, impenetrable colour. Intense and
perfumed with notes of flowers and nutmeg,
black fruit, chocolate and some vanilla.

Opulent and very fullbodied on the palate, with
a creamy sweetness.

The wine’s heaviness and sweetness are
beautifully balanced by the powerful structure
with finegrained tannins and vibrant acidity.
Long and fragrant finish a unique dessert
wine!

SERVICE & PAIRING

Serve at 14 16ºC. Enjoy as a dessert wine or
with a cheese platter
.

Handcrafted wine, without filtering or fining.
Grapes from carefully tended vines with strong
