Pale straw in colour with golden hues. The bouquet shows highly citrus and mineral aromas, notes of grapefruit, discreet tropical fruit and wildflowers heightened by a strong minerality from the purely granite soil, with a very discreet smokiness. Extremely fresh and lingering on the palate with vibrant citrus notes that produce a very elegant combination, with a fresh and lasting vibrant acidity on a crisp finish.

I was brought up in my family’s heartlands in the Douro Superior, Portugal, a remote yet magical corner of the Iberian Peninsula. Here the scents and smells of our rugged and beautiful landscape made a powerful impression on me.
Having travelled through many of the winemaking regions of the world and learned about their practices, I returned to our vineyards, convinced of their great potential to make world class wines. I’ve been making wine in this region for more than 20 years now. Over many harvests I’ve learned that by taking care of the vineyards to preserve the natural balance of things, I get the best out of our indigenous grape varieties such as Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Jaen… Created in my own winery, these wines can then express the real character of the land. These great vineyards of the Douro region continue to inspire my passion for winemaking.
