These wines are based on the tradicional nature of wine making in the Evora region. Records show that Foral (Royal Decree) wasbestowed on the city by King Manuel 1st in 1501. The Cartuxa winery has combined acient practices with today's know how to create this unique wine: evocative of wines made in Evora for time immemorial. I was first produced in 2000.

    Listed wine Vintage Year 2018

    This year saw an “atypical” growing season in Portugal, marked by a very rainy spring.

    The impact was greatest in the northern regions, where increased rainfall and relatively high humidity caused strong attacks of mildew. Scalding temperatures during August caused further losses, especially in the center and south.

    The difficulties look set to cause an overall decline in production (between 15 and 20 percent), Anunciação says, “but the quality of the wine is expected to be very good.”

     

    Coming Soon - The year of 2019

     

    We had a generally dry and mild viticultural year. During the summer months we had wide diurnal temperature ranges, with hot days and cool nights, which favoured gradual progression of the maturations and the preservation of good levels of acidity. The grapes, aided by late August rain, were in fine condition at harvest, showing great freshness and aromatic exuberance. Yields were low. The wines are very elegant, expressive, taut and with remarkable texture
