  • RECOMMENDATIONS The best scenario to enjoy
  • The grapes used to make this wine were exclusively from the old vines of Quinta de S. Luiz.

    The aim of the winemaker was to bring out the best of the terroir in the wine. The grapes were harvested by hand and firstly chosen within the vineyard, soon followed by a carefully selection in the cellar. Alcoholic fermentation for 15 days at a controlled temperature, preceded by a long maceration with skins for a period of 30 days. Matured for 16 months in French oak barrels.

  • Deep ruby red in colour with violet hues, this wine expresses the elegance of its unique terroir, Quinta de S. Luiz. Rich and expressive on the nose, it delivers layers of aromas of wild berries wrapped in hints of mint against a solid spicy background. In the mouth it reveals entrancing freshness combined with a silky, engaging and firm structure. A heady, captivating wine which delights from beginning to end.

  • Serve at a temperature of between 16 and 18ºC. Ideal with rich textured dishes, such as lamb, kid, wild boar, pasta with truffle sauce and cured cheeses.
