Description

Vineyard Description

Located at an altitude of 300 meters, the Syrah originates from the vineyard of Sobreira de Baixo, situated at the base of the slope and benefiting from a northwest exposure near the Arraiolos stream. The Touriga Nacional comes from the Cabido vineyard, with clay-sandy soils.

Winemaking

The grapes were handpicked in 25kg boxes and immediately transported to the winery, where they were stored in a cold room for 24 hours. This was followed by grape selection, pneumatic pressing, and decantation. The alcoholic fermentation began in stainless steel tanks with selected yeast. A portion of the batch was transferred to complete fermentation in 225L barrels. The fine lees were kept in contact with the wine.

Winetasting

On the nose, fresh strawberries stand out, surrounded by floral hints of peach. In the mouth, it reveals itself as fresh, elegant, and persistent, with a balanced acidity that gives vivacity to the palate. Its structure is marked by the predominance of Syrah, providing a smooth texture and a prolonged finish. This rosé pairs perfectly with light dishes, fresh salads, or simply as an aperitif during relaxed moments.
