    Robustus 2009 makes an impression because of its freshness. Its darker colour, with a distinctly mineral and very deep aroma, shows that ageing in vats for a long period gives the wine maturity and, above all, precision. On the palate, it is incredibly complex, enhancing the smoky notes that only appear in wines that age for long periods in wood. The tannins are seductive, zealous, but perfectly balanced, with a good structure that only old vines can impart. To be appreciated in a quiet moment, this wine grows with time, releasing aromas and showing an unparalleled complexity. Decanting is almost compulsory.

    Vinification:

    2009 was forecast to be cool and rainfall was heavy during the winter, thus the year was expected to be humid, with a long ripening period and easy harvest. However, high temperatures from the 12th August accelerated the ripening process, and brought forward the beginning of the harvest.

    The grapes for Robustus 2009 were manually selected on entering the winery, falling by gravity into a stainless steel vat. Alcoholic fermentation and maceration time were long, a total of 41 days. The wine was aged in 2000 litre wooden vats for 4 years, which will give it a great capacity for ageing in the bottle. 8000 bottles were bottled unfined and unfiltered at the end of December 2013.

    Grape varieties: Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela, Touriga Nacional, Tinto Cão and others.
