    The combination of Syrah with, the typical, Alicante Bouschet and Aragonês, gives this

    wine a very own identity and a balance between the ripe fruit and freshness. With the

    identity of the region well present, it also brings modernity in its profile.

    Perfect pairing with mature cheeses, salami, chorizo, pork belly, spicy and aromatic Asian dishes.

     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.
