It is a blend with an average age of 20 years, made from a selection of several lots originating in one of the oldest vineyards in the Douro region - "Quinta do Bom Retiro".
The ageing and maturing experience in the wood change its colour. The red shades give place to brick and yellow colours, to the tones of a sunset.
It is an oenological creation from several different lots. Wines are easy to match when they are young but as they grow older the matching process becomes more difficult. Greater knowledge and fine tuning from both sides is required so that, over time, a perfect and long-lasting harmony is reached. Just as it happens with people.
