GRAPE:100% Field Blend. The field blend comes from a single plot of old vines,. It is estimated that there are about 47 different grapes, mainly Alfrocheiro, Touriga Nacional and Baga. Sustainably grown vines planted in granite base with lines of sand and clay with strong presence of rose and white quartz rocks at 550 m (1,805 ft) elevation.
VINIFICATION AND AGING:Wine was aged in eight-year-old French barrels for about 28 months.
LOCATION, SOIL, CLIMATE:This wine is another of the lessons of the winery in terroir: this plot of Pellada is the "most exposed" of the three and has more compact soil with a little clay in addition to granite, the intense presence of white and rose quartz and that which have more hours of sunshine per day.
TASTING NOTES:Intense garnet color. Bergamot in tea, violet in orange peel and berries with cacao and vanilla. Very expressive, elegant with generous tannins. Very chewy and gastronomic - Robert Parker
