Growing Conditions

This wine rises from 500 meters above sea level in the granite soils of the right bank of the Dão. These low yield vines are about 30 years old and produce high quality grapes of the varieties Jaen, Alfrocheiro, Tinta Pinheira, Tinta Roriz and Touriga Nacional. This wine is a very personal vision over the Dão and its wines, enhancing the elegance and freshness that are natural to this region.

It was a fairly cold and humid year overall with a rainy spring and a much colder than usual early summer.
Ripenning was very slow and the wines express that wonderfull freshness.
