Dark, deep, near impenetrable black-hued purple-red colour,
very youthful in appearance. The nose is
softly full and voluminous with aromas of ripe blackberries and boysenberry
fruit with slight blueberry jam notes entwined with subtle herb elements. Fullish-bodied, this is sweetly rich and ripe
with juicy and succulent flavours of blackberries and boysenberry fruit along
with jammy notes. The fruit is supported
by supple, light extraction providing light tannin grip and gentle textures,
the integrated acidity the fruit softness and richness. The sweet flavours carry along a smooth line
to a light, lusciously ripe-fruited finish.
This is an up-front, sweet, juicy and ripe Lisboa red with flavours of
blackberries, boysenberries and jam of a smooth palate. Serve at barbecues and with grilled and
roasted red meats over the next 3 years.
A blend of 50% Aragones (Tempranillo), 40% Castelao and 10% Touriga
Nacional from Lisboa, fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. 17.0+/20
