Deep, ruby-red color. Quite distinctive rock rose floral essence with some background notes of resin and pine. On the palate, there are fruit forward ripe red berry flavors, wrapped in a coat of spiced tannins that give the wine structure and balance.
The grapes are principally sourced from Quinta do Bomfim and Quinta da Senhora da Ribeira.
We had a very dry and mild winter and spring, and by late summer the vines were in need of water to keep maturations on track. Fortunately, the virtual absence of rain from May to late August was counterbalanced by cooler summer conditions, which attenuated the lack of water. Before the vintage, we experienced fine conditions including some useful rain in late August, which re-hydrated the vines. We were blessed with ideal
harvest conditions throughout September with clear sunny days bringing moderate temperatures that contributed to balanced ripening. Yields were closer to average following the exceptionally small years of 2017 and 2018. Expressive aromas, freshness and liveliness, in contrast to the concentration of recent years, are the hallmarks of the 2019 wines.
