Winery: Quinta dos Roques
Grapes: Alfrocheiro, Jaen, Tinta Roriz and Touriga Nacional
Winemaking/Vinification: Pressing of the grapes with total desteming, followed by fermentation in stainless steel vats with selected yeasts at a temperature of 28-30oC. Maceration period of 10 days with soft "reassemblages".
Ageing: In stainless steel vats with only 10% of oak barrel aged wine added to the final blend to imprint a little bit more structure.
Aroma: Intense fruit bouquet, with wild berries and pine needle notes.
Tasting Notes: A perfectly clear dark ruby colour, brilliant. On the palate it is very supple with soft tannins and a nice finish.
Food pairing: Excellent with lamb, game (deer, roe deer) or poultry.
