From a hilly part of the Alentejo, Serra de São Mamede and Portalegre.
Old vines averaging 80+ years-old from granitic and clay soils. The wine is an interesting blend of Alicante Bouschet and Trincadeira (or Tinta Amarela in the Douro) and a field blend of different Muscat varieties, white and red (Nunes, Hamburg, Leona, Petits Grains, Alessandria).
The bunches are kept whole and the wine goes through a soft maceration with the stems for five days. It is pressed and fermented in stainless steel.
After two months it got racked into old barrel where it rested for a year. This is a perfect example of Vitor’s red wines: a pale and delicate ruby color, with just hints of berry fruit, and enough grip to keep you interested.
