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.
Made from exclusively from Syrah grapes, grown sustainably in our own vineyards. Fermented without stems under temperature control, frequent delestage, followed by extended skin maceration to enhance varietal fruit characters, and to provide tannin structure and balance. Aged for 8 months in French and American oak barrels.
Classy aroma of dark berry fruits, black currant, blueberry and cassis. Well crafted elegant palate showing sweet but solid fruit, well integrated quality oak, great balance, good tannic structure, long and persistent.
