From vineyards sited on clay and limestone soil located in the vicinity of Portugal’s most vibrant and trendy city, Lisbon. The grapes were then destemmed and fermented at a controlled temperature of 25ºC in stainless steel tanks. The wine is bottled straight away to retain its vibrant juicy fruit flavours.
Deep ruby colour. Aromas of ripe red fruits with hints of raspberry. A fruity palate, intense, yet soft and with plenty of character and body. Long, smooth finish.
A variety of red meat dishes and richly flavoured poultry. Hearty pasta sauces and dressed salads.
