Solstício 2014 Red
Made from multiple ancient varietals present on a very old vineyard located at the outskirts of Reguengo village, in Serra de S. Mamede (the unique mountain above 1000 meters’ altitude in the South of Portugal).
The vineyard faces eastward, at an altitude of 598 meters, and the soil is granitic (Ordovician).
Yields are very low. There are about 14 different varieties from a mass selection made until the early twentieth century. We can indicate a variety dominance: Trincadeira, Aragonez, Alicante Bouschet, Grand Noir, Tinta de Olho Branco e Castelão.
After the grapes were destemmed and crushed, the wine fermented with indigenous yeast in a small vat of 2000 litres. Aged for 23 months in very old French oak barrels.
Total Acidity: 5.8 (g/dm3)
Total Sugar: 0.1 (g/dm3)

|An exotic and complex aroma. The elegant notes of pinaceous resins along with a balsamic vegetable and hints of pepper, nutmeg and cloves. The fruit is red, fresh and very ripe.|
|In the mouth the tannins are true background runners, powerful, light, very robust and tasty, they give a magic support to the fantastic fruit that leaves a long and drawn finish that washes the mouth.|
