This wine has all the richness and ripeness of the Alentejo. Packed with dense black fruits and balanced acidity, it is a blend of two perfumed grapes, Touriga Nacional and Syrah. The wood aging has rounded out the natural tannins of the fruit and given a concentrated wine that will still need to age. Drink from 2017.
