Description

Batuta is a wine of extremes, tannins are very fine, aromas are intense but never exuberant. It has incredible concentration from the old centenarian vineyards, yet it is very fresh and elegant.ÊThe grapes are sourced from north facing 70 yo vineyards at Quinta do Carril, which offer slow and balanced ripening, as well as from centenarian vines near Quinta de Napoles. Batuta is the result of a very delicate vinification process, with long maceration but little extraction, where all the details are carefully considered in order to obtain a complex, fine and elegant wine.

Tasting Notes

The Batuta 2013 shows a beautiful, intense, and vivid ruby colour. Deep and complex aroma, with a mineral and wild berries profile in full harmony with the wood. Multi-layered with fresh spices, such as black pepper and clove. Fine and elegant in the mouth, with silky texture and firm structure, it shows very polished and luxurious tannins. Deep and multidimensional. Very fine, long and seductive finish. It will age with great class.
