FAST DELIVERY. Details

Intense and lifted aromas of cigar box, tobacco leaf, spices, cedar and vanilla, combined with fresh dark berries and ripe plums. A rich, full and round palate of great balance, displaying rich Douro berry fruit with a delicious savoury edge, with integrated tannins and a great length of finish.

Ideal with hearty stews and roasted joints. Also excellent with game.

The grapes (25-30 different varieties in a field blend), come from parcels of old vines across Quinta do Crasto's estate. The soil on which the vines grow is schist, with vineyards planted on socalcos (stepped terraces supported by stone walls) on a Southeast facing aspect.

After harvest by hand, the grapes are carefully carried to the winery in small boxes and inspected on a sorting table on arrival. The grapes are then completely de-stemmed and slightly crushed, before being transferred to temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks to ferment in contact with the skins. Once alcoholic fermentation is complete, the must is gently pressed using hydraulic presses and the wine is matured in a mix of 85% French oak and 15% in American oak barrels for 16 months.
