Alcohol/vol 13.5%
Made with a very carefully winemaking, using gravity and precise techniques, this wine is full bodied with a ripe berry colour and fruity aromas marked by Tinta Roriz that is responsible for the intense aroma of young fresh fruit and by floral notes from the Touriga Nacional. Excelente freshness, toasty and appetising in the mouth, with an attractive and elegant finish. It's a wine that we can enjoy from now but it will also age a few years very well. Pour at 14-16ºC with your favourite cheese or meat during the first years. Will be lovely with game after aging on bottle.

Boysenberry, plum and violet notes meld in this plush, medium- to full-bodied red offering licorice and olive accents and hints of chocolate leading into the minerally finish. Drink now through 2025. 6,500 cases made, 3,500 cases imported.

Dense fruits and a firm texture give this wine both richness and concentration. Its young tannins and balanced acidity both point to a good future for this fine wine. Drink from 2020.

The 2016 Tinto, now in a fat bottle with a typically pretty label from Portal, is a roughly equal blend of Tinta Roriz, Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca, aged for nine months in a mixture of new and used French oak. Tinta Roriz, which tends to produce more power, has declined in this blend-this is the first time it drops below 50% of the blend. It comes in at 13.5% alcohol. Elegant and fruity, this has a fresh feel and intensity of flavor. I liked the acidity supporting the flavors here too. It could use a bit more concentration, but it is a nice, regular Colheita.
