Grapes are hand-picked and fermentation occurs in temperature controlled, stainless steel tanks. Wine ages for 12 months in French oak barrels. A beautifully vibrant, bright and juicy red made from native Portuguese varieties Alfrocheiro, Touriga-Nacional and Tinta-Roriz. Much lighter that what you might expect from a Portuguese red and great with a plate of cured meats!

Notes on the Producer

Today the Dão is probably the best place in Portugal to find fresher aromatic styles of wine made from one of the many interesting indigenous grape varieties Portugal has to offer. And Alvaro Castro is arguably the best winemaker in the region. With white varieties such as Encruzado, Cerceal Branco and Bical and reds such as the Tourigas Nacional and Roriz, Alfrocheiro, Jaen, Tinta Amarela and Tinta Cão, it’s not surprising that Alvaro makes many different wines. What links them is his of traditional and modern techniques, creating wines of balance and integrity.
