Among the best 1% of all wines in the world (Vivino). Hand selected and picked. Careful, total de-stemming and gentle pressing. The Oratório grapes are fermented and foot-trodden in open granite vats and aged in French oak barrels for over 18 months. The wine is stored for at least one year before being released to the market. Deep, intense ruby colour. Elegant, depth with predominantly red and briar fruit backed up by complexity resulting from long ageing in the barrel. Silky on first contact, very fine tanins which provides a generous structure to this wine, though with elegance and balance. Intense on the palate, with a pronouncedly long finish.
