Wine information: Established in 1990 by Manuel Oliveira, this set of vineyards and winery is at the heart of the Dão’s revival . A dynamic outfit it is run by the enthusiastic Luís Lourenço and his wife Luísa (Manuel’s daughter). The team is completed by cellar master João Santiago, vineyard manager Vanda, and winemaker Rui Reguinga. 40 Hectares of vines span 3 different locations around the village, including the legendary old Pessegueiro (peach tree). Elvations: 450 -550m asl.  Soils are sandy granite. Red varieties compriseTouriga Nacional, Alfrocheiro, Tinta Roriz, Jaen, and the white varieties Encruzado, Malvasia, Cercial and Bical. This is a blend of the finest Tourriga Nacional wines made at the winery, aged in new barriques. Brilliant deep dark colour, with an intense fruit bouquet reminding wild blackcurrants and pine leaves, with vanilla and chocolate notes given by the oak. On the palate it is very generous with the astringence characteristic of its youth, foretelling a remarkable ageing due to its great balance between alcohol, acidity, tannins and body. One to stick away in the cellar and enjoy from 2013 onwards.
