Vardo – Drop of Life
Of Portugal's more than 200 traditional varieties, Touriga Nacional is considered the flagship grape, primarily due to its ability to produce high quality wines, from the intricate and harsh wines of Douro to the delicious Porto wines. Eager for sun, he easily found a second home in Segarcea, where the 1440 hours of summer sunshine provide all the conditions to produce a warm, generous, complex wine, with groups and floors of staggering successive aromas. Intense, with consistent tannins and a strong structure in which it harmoniously combines wood and fruit notes.
The grapes were harvested mechanically, crushed and then kept for maceration-fermentation in piston winemakers for almost two weeks. The wine was aged in French and American oak barrels of the first and second passage, for a variable period between 8 and 12 months depending on the type of barrel.
Recommended serving temperature:
16º C-18º C. It is necessary to open the bottle half an hour before serving and for the wine to be decanted. Any deposits certify the minimum number of interventions that are made on the wine.
