A special commemorative 100% Syrah launched for the bicentennial of the Danish storyteller Hans Christian Andersen.  In 1991, we were the first ones to plant Syrah in the Alentejo, choosing rootstock from southern Rhone clones.

Harvest 2012, our 17th harvest. A record cold and dry winter, followed by a cold and wet spring. Superlative summer. All in all, a quality driven vintage!

Made exclusively from selected Syrah grapes handpicked at optimum maturity from chosen sites in our own vineyards. Fermented without stems under temperature control, frequent delestage, followed by extended skin maceration to enhance varietal fruit characters, and to provide tannin structure and balance. Aged for 8 months in French (85%) and American (15%) oak barrels.

Complex spicy, savoury fruit aromas with notes of tobacco, plums and prunes. Sweet, ripe fruit on the palate, good depth, richness and concentration. Very gastronomic.
