Vineyard: Grapes picked from the original vineyard planted by Baron Bodo von Bruemmer on the lower part of Casal Sta Maria.
Year: A year in which precipitation and temperature are within normal limits, except for 3 days in August when there was an extreme temperature, which caused scald in some of our vineyards. The entire period of growth, until the harvest, was dry and hot, which had a positive impact on the flowering season and healthiness of the grapes. Though, August brought the typical foggy weather of Colares. The result were small bunches at the harvest, originating concentrated, balanced and aromatic wines.
Winemakers comment: Flavours of the ocean influence (salinity). Deep yellow plums, peach, apricot and citrus aromas. Floral and mineral notes, with a final hint of butter and vanilla from battonage in barrels. Big impact on the palate, oily texture, and deep and intense flavours. The salty sensation and almond flavours from the aging in barrel make the wine a true discovery.
Consumption: Should be drunk around 8-10ºC. To be opened between August 2020 / August 2024.
