Lapa dos Gaivoes
The vineyard has very poor, finely textured acidic soil. The climate is Mediterranean and cooled by the winds from the Serra de Sao Mamede providing daily temperature extremes in order to concentrate the acidity required for ageable wines. It is deep garnet in colour, is intense and concentrated with complex aromas of red and black berries, wild flowers, black pepper, coconut and barrel spice. Full body, elegant and fresh with some acidity and fine tannins. Dark ripe spicy fruit and chocolate truffle flavours carry through to a long finish that shows earthy minerality. Good to eat with game, lean roasted meats and cheese.
