Light Ruby Colour such as the colour of Cherry
The aromas of red fruit dominate with a balanced maturation, without being exaggerated.
12 months in used oak barrels.
Evidence for the notes of red cherry, gooseberry and raspberry. In the mouth, it is admirable the acid freshness in a red wine of the Douro, which positively reflects the influence of the location of these vines on a cooler terrain. The fruity notes, which are allied to the vibrant minerality., provide a proof marked by lightness.

14ºC to 16ºC
The year of 2018
2018 was another atypical year in the Douro. We could even define irregular and uncharacteristic as the rule in recent years. 2018 had many difficulties and as main characteristics that define it: frequent and estended rainfall periods, hail storms, the great mildew pressure and the summer heat wave. But it seems that the grape quality was good and even, in some cases, as reported by some Douro producers, extraordinary.
