Made from 100% Alicante Bouschet from the Antes and Boa Vista vineyards. The grapes are harvested as late possible to obtain the full richness of the fruit and tannins. The wine sees prolonged maceration on skins followed by 14 months maturation in barrel. The wine has intense notes of dark fruit and spice, which on the palate become plums and prunes, with smooth rich tannins providing a long rich finish with some good acidity.
The nose has jasmine tea notes with white pepper held together by a fine sandy structure. On the palate there are bright floral and mineral nuances with a lingeringly spicy, ginger and exotic finish. A hugely and broadly appealing and accessible Gewürz.
