This blend is a vibrant deep red colour and is made up of Syrah (55 %), Trincadeira (17%), Cabernet Sauvignon (14%), Mourvedre (7%), Touriga Nacional (7%). On the nose it is savoury, with red berries, lavender, thyme and rosemary. It is inky and wild but has a beautiful freshness, and concentration on the mid palate. It has a meaty character, entwined with rich dark spice and chocolate. It is elegantly powerful with a youthful freshness, yet a deep concentration, and a structured firm tannin profile, making sure this wine will last for many years. A beautiful lingering flavour remains on your palate, long after taking a sip.
Best drinking 2023-2030
