This wine was made from a careful selection of grapes and an extended maceration in order to obtain the necessary richness, body and fruitiness needed for a Vintage port. Fermentation was arrested by adding grape alcohol in order to produce a naturally sweet wine.
The vines are cultivated on terraces or platforms supported by the natural contours of the hillsides.
Bottled after 4 years in cask, this port is deeply coloured with aromas reminiscent of ripe berry fruits and mulberry. Full bodied with a long finish.
