A single estate Dao, combining classic Portuguese character with polished, modern winemaking.
This estate at Vila Nova de Tazém, in Gouveia county, has poor quality, granite soils. Matured for 12 months in French (80%) and Russian (20%) oak barrels.
Lifted aromas of wild black fruit, off-set with some spicy, smoky notes. The palate has black cherry, mocha and some grip – well-balanced by fruit acidity – to give an elegant yet structured wine with a fresh herbal, black fruit finish. Some savoury development on the palate adds complexity.
