Technical Notes

Vinified at the wineries of Quinta do Seixo, in Cima Corgo, and Quinta da Leda, in the Douro Superior, using advanced technology. After soft-crushing and destemming, the grapes are transferred to stainless steel tanks, where alcoholic fermentation occurs. During this phase, soft maceration at controlled temperatures takes place to extract the compounds that provide the color, aroma and flavor of this wine. The wine matured in used barrels of French oak for roughly 12 months. The final blend was made further to numerous tests and analysis during this period. In order to preserve the highest possible quality, this wine was only submitted to filtration prior to bottling.

Food Pairing

This wine pairs wonderfully with meat dishes, such as traditional Portuguese "cozido", and grilled red meats. It is extremely gastronomic and is also an ideal accompaniment to white meats or oven-roasted fish.
