50% Castelao, 30% Aragonez, 20% Syrah
Gloriously fruity nose with a dash of vanilla followed by a lovely layered palate mixing fruit and spice with deeper leathery, meaty tones. Well-integrated oak, mature tannins and great fruit concentration combine to create a smooth mouthfeel which is kept in check by vibrant acidity.
