Description

A beautifully vibrant, bright and juicy red made from native Portuguese varieties Alfrocheiro, Touriga-Nacional and Tinta-Roriz. Great with a plate of cured meats!

Granite and sand grown Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz and Alfrocheiro are fermented in stainless steel to preserve fruit purity before being aged in French Oak barrels for 12 months.

Today the Dão is probably the best place in Portugal to find fresher aromatic styles of wine made from one of the many interesting indigenous grape varieties Portugal has to offer. And Alvaro Castro is arguably the best winemaker in the region. With white varieties such as Encruzado, Cerceal Branco and Bical and reds such as the Tourigas Nacional and Roriz, Alfrocheiro, Jaen, Tinta Amarela and Tinta Cão, it’s not surprising that Alvaro makes many different wines. What links them is his of traditional and modern techniques, creating wines of balance and integrity.

Organic farming.

Vegan friendly.
