Vineyards

Selection of grapes from Die Hoek and Stettyn Vineyards properties, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Borocca & Souzao.

Harvested

Harvested at full ripeness, 26º balling and cold soaked for 2 days to extract maximum colour & structure.

Cellar Treatment

Tasting Notes

Touriga Nacional cultivar, a classic style, matured in French oak. Brimming with ripe fruit, dark chocolate and spices, this fortified wine brings a rich round full bodied palate with a long smooth finish.
