Crafting wine experiences
A new Douro underlined by nature
With this São Luiz Red Colheita, São Luiz sees its dream of producing an organic wine come to life. This dream has been in the making for years, in the search for a more balanced way of producing wine and in the preservation of the terraces and stone walls that support the vines, prevent soil erosion and are the refuge of Douro’s fauna and flora.
This wine should be stored in a cool and dry place, sheltered from light and temperature fluctuations, and the bottle should remain in a horizontal position.

- RECOMMENDATIONS HOW TO SERVE IT
The winemaking process began with the total destemming and crushing of the grapes. Alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel vats for 12 days at temperatures between 23 and 25°C, followed by 5 days of maceration with skins on. Malolactic fermentation in stainless-steel vats, with part of the ageing process in 300 litre French oak barrels.
This organic wine shows a vibrant colour, with the floral aromas of Touriga Nacional and aromas of wood against a background of subtle black pepper notes, and balanced acidity. Elegant and fresh in the mouth, with fine and enduring tannins.
Best served at a temperature between 16 and 18°C. Ideal with red meat, game and cheese.
