Its roots go back to Badeco Vineyard, at Herdade do Esporão, in 1988 and is probably the oldest vineyard with this grape in the Alentejo region. It is a wine that is only produced in exceptional years and the outcome of intense experimentation and collaboration between the winemaking and viticulture teams at Herdade do Esporão. This involves the vinification of small blends of the same grape variety from different plots, in which the final goal is to understand and enhance the character of each grape associated with the type of soil and microclimate where it is grown. The result of the continuous trials is the launch of such unique wines, each variety producing limited quantities.
COLOUR: Deep, dark red, purple edges.
AROMA: Blueberry, blackberry, and plum fruit aromas, some violet floral notes with subtle toasty oak.
PALATE: Dense fruit on the palate, velvety, long, complex and persistent finish.
