  • A fresh red shows its cooler climate origin in lively red fruits and a mineral character tinged with dark chocolate and liquorice notes. Flural notes combine with lively red fruits and well-integrated oak. Smooth and round on the palate, with a bright acidity that leaves a vibrant, lifted finish.

The wine was made following a philosophy of minimal intervention. The field blend grapes were carefully sorted and co-fermented using only indigenous yeasts. The blend was then aged in French oak barrels for 10 months, imparting subtle complexity, followed by a further six months in a bottle.

Floral notes combine with lively red fruits and well-integrated oak. The palate is smooth and round, with a bright acidity that leaves a vibrant, lifted finish.

Vale da Mata is the name of a small, old vineyard located in the foothills of Serra de Aire in Cortes. The vineyard has a maritime climate and is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean. The parcel is just a few hectares and is situated on a steep terrain with rocky soil. The land is extremely hard to work and is cultivated manually, with winter pruning and green harvesting by hand. Protected to the north, it has good sunlight exposure throughout the day and is surrounded by olive trees, fig-trees, walnuts and shrubs. Vale de Mata is associated with several sustainable programmes; it is a member of the FSC and grows all its grapes according to organic philosophies. The vines are trained according to the Cordon Royat method, and the grapes are manually harvested at optimum maturity in 12-kg boxes.
