Drink now through to 2028. No need to decant before serving.

Sandra Tavares da Silva and Jorge Serodio Borges worked for some of Portugal’s top wineries including Niepoort and Vale Dona Maria before deciding to found their own winery in 2001. The couple bought an old port lodge and began their wine label by purchasing fruit from the prized Pinhão Valley before acquiring their own vineyard in 2003. Over the years they have also added other vineyards including the magnificent Quinta da Manoella where this wine begins its life.

This delicious red blend is primarily composed of Touriga Nacional as well as a smaller amount of Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, and Tinta Francisca. The vineyard was planted in 1973 with bush vines on top quality schist soils. As is traditional, the grapes are trodden by foot in stone lagares or troughs after the harvest. Fermentation takes place in modern stainless steel tanks followed by 16 months of ageing in used French oak barrels.

The result is an excellent example of a Douro red blend with ample dark berry and plum notes on the nose seasoned with hints of dried herbs, earthy tones and spice from the oak ageing. On the palate there is a generous full body, well-rounded tannins and a long finish with plenty of juicy dark fruit. A great wine to drink with rich red meat dishes or to hold in the cellar for a few more years.
