This high quality full body wine is a cuvee of four varietials, the first three are native: 01/ Aragonez, 02/ Trincadeira, 03/ Alicante Bouschet and 08/ Cabernet Sauvignon.

Dark deep garnet wine color, complex scents of wild fruits; ripe blackberries, plum and oak reaches your nose first and then it offer soft, warm, excellent calm acidity, persistent finish, a hints of vanilla, dark chocolate and toasted wood. A touch of French style and definitely a great wine to enjoy.

This is a non-filtered wine which is a daring work of art; unless the wine making process is very clean; otherwise the winemaker will not go for it. You may consider open the bottle at noon let the wine breathing for a while and also could rest the wine bottle in bucket which filled with some tap water; this way could precipitate the lees at the bottom of the bottle. Before serving try to transfer half of the wine or less to a decanter. Serve little, so that you could taste the evolving difference of wine in the decanter & the bottle.

Food pairing: dishes with light sauces, Pizza with meats, pasta with Cheese and you are also suggested to enjoy this wine with these dishes; spring rolls, Char Siu (Chinese BBQ Pork), Crisp Roasted Duck.

It is possible be cellaring at least up to 2025.
