The historic Santar estate is one of the oldest in the Dão region. The estate wine is structured, mineral, dark in character and firm in tannins. At the same time, rich black fruits are waiting to burst out, bringing with them ripeness and balanced acidity. It's a serious wine for aging; drink from 2018.
