The first brand by Casa da Passarella, Villa Oliveira, was originally born more than 100 ago. To pay a faithful homage to our history, we have decided to produce these extremely limited editions. It comes from hand-picked 100% Touriga Nacional grapes. The fermentation is achieved with indigenous yeasts in cement tanks followed by a maceration period of one month. The ageing process occurs in 225 litres French oak barrels for a period of 18 months. This wine is not subject to filtering. With a rigorously limited edition of 2500 bottles, this wine expresses the aim of producing a Touriga Nacional old vine. In a region where the old vineyard is formed by a wide mixture of grape varieties in the same plot of land, we decided to harvest 3500 kg Touriga Nacional grapes from a single 80-year-old vineyard, which implied choosing the Touriga Nacional variety from the other grape varieties in that plot. From this highly selective harvest emerged a classical Touriga Nacional, whose wine making process was developed taking into account the exceptional raw material, with no use of any type of yeasts, industrial enzymes or correction.
