Wine maker notes
Fermentation lasts for about 7 days at 28C, maintaining full skin contact; the wine is then aged five months in new and used oak barrels.

Technical notes
48% Castelao, 37% Trincadeira, 15% Aragones (Tempranillo).

Food pairing
Serve at room temperature. Excellent with red meat, turkey and other white meats, and cheeses.

Producer
Jose Maria da Fonseca is the oldest wine company in Portugal, and from the outset wine has been much more than a business to us, it is a passion. It is this passion nurtured year after year, decade after decade which we share with you in every bottle of our carefully crafted wines.
