I’ve previously shared the legend that serves as inspiration for this wine. In the 2014 harvest I gave it a special shoutout, at the time it was a “perfect anonymous”. But it quickly evolved into an “always present”.

A wine that is created from two of the most famous castes from the Demarcated Region of Douro, Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca. I’ve already had the opportunity to try the newest harvest, 2015, and unsurprisingly it’s another excellent wine from a year that’s fast becoming one of the best for the region.

In the taste, it shows an intense ruby colour with black fruit and blueberry aromas, well-enveloped with the roasted notes of the French oak barrel stage. The taste itself, with well-rounded, mature, well-integrated tannins in a very elegant structure, delivers a long and persistent finish.

Highly recommended.
