The nose is dominated by red fruits such as red currant, strawberry and raspberry, but there is also some vanilla and coconut that is derived from the ageing in oak. The palate is bright with good acidity, but the wine has plenty of structure and weight without being too cloying or heavy. The flavors are again in the red spectrum but there is some citrus or mineral aspects on the mid to back palate.
100% Touriga Nacionale. This is a dry Provencal style wine has bright red fruits on the nose and palate, possessing lovely acidity while maintaining a long and lengthy finish. Perfect on its own during the warmer months or paired with shellfish and oysters on the half shell.
100% Cabernet Franc. The nose is beautifully expressive, with primary aromas of dark fruited berries, black coffee bean, cured meats with secondary aromas of violet and pencil lead or graphite. The wine is beautifully balanced, and although this is a full-bodied wine, it does not feel heavy or overly weighty.
An inky purple wine with aromas of black and blueberries, with secondary aromas of plum, violet and herbs. Full bodied and dry with good acidity to ensure the wine is bright and fruit forward with just a link of oak.
A dry wine comprised of 71% Viognier and 29% Vidal Blanc, fermented and matured exclusively in stainless steel tanks. The nose is initially fruit forward with cantaloupe, melon and apricots, turning to more baking spice aromas with warmth and aeration.

The wine has a pale straw color with perhaps a greenish tinge to it. The nose is beautifully expressive with aromas of wet stone, flint, matchstick, citrus and stone fruits, and upon aeration and warmth, you get more topical nuances and perhaps a touch of butterscotch or caramel from the oak.
The palate is lively and vibrant with a good core of acidity on the entry with flavors of red apple skin, green apple, lemon, citrus and stone fruits. The oak provides some texture and weight with the finish quite long and length, but the influence of the barrel is kept to a minimum. This wine shows more tension and vivacity than previous years and showcases a style that we will be pursuing in the future.
