Varieties

CADÃO – AGED VINEYARDS – GREAT CHOICE, coming from vineyards over 75 years old and a variety of more than 37 typical grape varieties of DOURO.

Vinification

Manual harvesting and picking only those fully ripe and with the careful selection of the bunches. Pelicular maceration and alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperatures in stainless steel cubes. Post-fermentation maceration followed by malolactic fermentation.

Vinification with every care necessary to fully preserving its uniqueness and aged for eighteen months in French oak casks before a further six months in the bottle. In order to preserve the quality of this wine intact, there is no cold stabilisation process and, hence, as a natural product, the wine may contain sediment with age.

Tasting Notes

A brilliant clear purple color, good sensation of aromatic freshness, notes of an excellent complexity that recall the wild berries of the Douro, heather and touches of violet, balsamic alongside hints of toast and chocolate.

Structured and dense but highly elegant. Well integrated, full bodied with mature tannins and a silky finish, exuberant and with excellent persistence.

 Alcohol– 15 % vol.

Ideal for meat and game dishes, cheeses, traditional Portuguese food and Mediterranean cuisine generally.

Recommended temperature between 18º-20°C
