2018/11Vinho Grandes Escolhas
Two years after I had found the vineyard blocks for my Procura red wine, I found an unique and exceptional new vineyard in Portalegre, a much cooler par t of the Alentejo region. An old mixed vineyard, with extremely low yield, located in the slopes of Sao Mamede mountain range.This exceptionally fresh, but intense wine, is the result of this vineyard ́s age, location and complexity of the field blend.
