45% touriga nacional, 28% tinta cao, 9% tinta roriz, 7% tinta amarela, 7% avarelhao, 4% sousao hand-picked and destemmed and fermented together in a small fermenter, foot-stomped in traditional Portuguese lagar fashion, matured in old oak for 10 months. Establishment of this vineyard on its rocky, terraced hillsides was a labour of love, wild deer regarding it as their spring vegetable garden. You have to wait for this blend to work its magic, for it is a wine of quite remarkable finesse and aromatic qualities. Its length, too,is beyond the ordinary. (97) JAMES HALLIDAY
