    Winemaker's Notes:

    Portugal isn't just famous for its Ports any more, and this top pick, an amazingly good value, will show you why! Deep red color with purple tints. On the nose excellent plummy fruit aromas with hints of ceddar wood and floral scents. The palate is smooth, with elegant floral flavours and good acidity. The wine has plenty of tannins and structure, ensuring excellent bottle age potential.

    Vinification took place at Quinta do Sol where the Symington family have their modern vinification centre. The grapes are rigorously selected by bunch, entirely de-stalked and lightly crushed, before transfer to the fermentation tank where they are inoculated with selected yeast. The fermentation took place with temperature control at between 26º and 27ºC and using the pumping over system.

    Following the malolactic fermentation the wine was aged for one year in new French oak casks after which it was bottled. This was followed by some months in bottle for the wine to "settle" before release.
