Wine obtained from old Castelão vineyards. Castelão variety at its best with notes of dark fruits, jam and spices. Complex in the mouth with tobacco and chocolate notes caused by the stage in barrels. It is a full-bodied wine, with tannins and an elegant finish.

Castes

100% Castelão (varietal)

Winemaking

This wine is produced in an already rare and very traditional manner. The grapes are manually harvested and are then pressed with the feet and left in contact with their skin for a long period to extract all the complexity of the fruits and aromas. Full  fermentation is made in the mills of the estate’s cellar, followed by a 12-month stage in French oak barrels and another 12 months in the bottle.

Tasting Notes

The Estate’s low-productivity old vineyards lead to a structured, intense and complex Castelão, that has developed, thanks to the above-mentioned long stage in bottle, tobacco, coffee and dark chocolate aromas. The prominent tannins and good acidity are also evident, revealing the rustic and typical aspect of the variety, with an excellent ageing capacity.

SORRY!
The design agency didn't make it on time, therefor, the English version, will take a bit longer that we expected. Meanwhile, Rui Reguinga, our prestigious enologist, is making a 2015 memorable wine. ×
