Description and Reviews:
Limited Edition | Only 200 produced.

VINIFICATION AND AGEING
Hand-picked at the optimum time, the grapes are then destemmed, crushed and converted into wine through a process of careful skin maceration and constant churning during fermentation aimed at producing white wines full of colour and structure, with enough phenolic compounds to support a long ageing in wood. This fermentation takes place in vats (lagares) until the right degree of sweetness (baumé) is achieved. At this point, grape brandy is added to create the final fortified wine. A wine of high quality, made from one single harvest. Aged in oak wood for 80 years.

TASTING NOTES
With a classic hue of white Ports aged in wood, stands out by its surprising character with notes of citrus, spice, beeswax and hints of smoke. Fresh on the palate, it unravels flavours of syrup citrus, white plum and hazelnut, and wraps up with a long and consistent finish.

PAIRING
Refreshed, it emerges when combined with hard cheeses and also with honey-roasted almonds, caramelized seafood and curry.
BEST SERVED AT / 12° - 14°C


Reviews
"20% alcohol, pH 3.44, 7.12 g/l acid, 173 g/l sugar. Brown/amber in colour. This is so complex, aromatically and also on the palate. Bold, spicy and powerful, with the intense sweetness countered by good acidity and savoury notes. Really complex, showing nuts, old furniture, honey, raisins, treacle and intense spiciness. Astonishingly complex and concentrated, this still tastes fresh and detailed. Just lovely. 98/100" Wine Anorak
