This is a strong, structured, and full bodied wine. After winemaking and aging in oak casks, the different grape varieties are assembled and it is here that winemaker Parviz artfully combines sensitivity and imagination in search of a rich complexity for this wine.
A grape variety which originates from the Bordeaux region. In the Medoc Grands Crus, the Petit Verdot provides a rare and highly sought after wine, rare because it does not reach maturity every year due to late harvest dates often combined with unfavourable weather conditions. Consequently this grape variety is particularly well adapted to the Algarve region.
This grape variety comes to us from the Rioja region of Spain where it is better known as Tempranillo. A reliable and surprising grape providing a luxurious texture and full fruity taste and yet low in tannins.
The Syrah grape is a difficult to grow and demanding vine, requiring constant attention.
The Syrah prefers “normal” growing conditions, neither too hot nor too cold.
