Flowering in the Duoro occurred in the last 10 days of May. The weather conditions provided for a perfect flowering season.
Grape varietals: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinto Cão, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Barroca
Vinification: Only made in exceptional years, from some of the finest produce in the Douro Valley. All grapes are hand picked and then foot trodden in the traditional ways. After two winters in large wooden vats, the final blends are prepared and the wines are bottled. Once in bottle these wines will continue to age beautifully for 40 to 50 years.
