2022 Dry Red Wine No. 3 Magnum (1.5L)


Super lifted and complex. Lavender, satsuma plum and balsamic. Summer berries, plums and licorice spice of Touriga Naçional, the Tinta Cão brings bright and fragrant blue fruit energy. Tinta Roriz brings a savoury depth to the palate to compliment the Tinta Amarela’s floral and bay leaf herbal lift. To tie everything together the finesse of Alvarelhão and the acidity of the Sousão tightens, brightens and drives the long palate. Wonderfully complex and yet medium bodied.

Trophy Winner (Best Red Blend of Show), 2023 Royal Qld Wine Show

The last fruit to be harvested from the vineyard. Hand picked and destemmed together some parcels in a ‘field blend’ style retaining as many whole berries as possible. The first working of the must is with the feet as in a traditional lagar in Portugal to extract tannins from both skins and seeds. Gentle pressing and maturation in old oak barrels for 10 months.
