Luis Duarte has created this multi award winning wine that is full-flavoured with an elegant profile and soft tannins. After 12 months of slow maturation in French oak he selected 23 casks of the best lots of Syrah and Touriga Nacional.

It is a deep red with concentrated plummy tones and some spicy notes as well as complex and delicate aromas and finish.

This wine is commonly selected in the 50 Great Portuguese Wines annual selection as judged by experts such as Sarah Ahmed, Jamie Goode, Tom Cannavan and Olly Smith.
