About

97

"Dark, dense, promising black red in colour, with ample fresh elderberry and plum fruits qualified by the distinctive tea-leaf finesse which comes from Touriga Nacional and friends. On the palate, this is a wine of energetic, searching, almost dancing fruit backed by soft, sweet tannins and, for the time being, lent huge charm by its aromatic freshness and complexity. 2018-2024."

Product Description:

"Luisa Amorim had the radical idea of creating an unoaked red wine from some of the estate’s best vines, in order to perfectly translate her unique terroir into a bottle. 25% Touriga Nacional, 25% Touriga Franca, 25% Tinta Roriz, 25% Tinto Cão. The varieties are blended to create a deep, mineral-driven wine. The grapes are destemmed and undergo a 5 day pre-fermentation maceration. Cool fermentation and aging in large stainless steel tanks. Unfined and unfiltered. 13.5% alcohol. 8000 cases produced. An intense red wine with notes of violets and a hint of balsamic. Fresh and elegant, ripe tannins, long finish." - Importer
