30.00

Product Description

A special commemorative 100% Syrah launched for the bicentennial of the Danish storyteller Hans Christian Andersen. In 1991, we were the first ones to plant Syrah in the Alentejo, choosing rootstock from southern Rhone clones.

Vinification

100% Syrah grown sustainably on the ancient clay over limestone soils in own vineyards surrounding our estate in Vidigueira.

This single parcel was harvested separately according to ripeness. The fruit was destemmed and gently crushed, following fermentation under temperature control for 2 weeks in stainless steel tanks, with gentle punchdowns, pumpovers and delestage. The wine matured for 8 months in used French oak barrels.

Tasting Notes

Complex spicy, savoury fruit aromas with notes of cedar and mint. Elegant palate with a firm tannic structure.
