Select old vine Tinta Barocca and Touriga Nacional (? 30 years in age) is selected due to the distinctive cocoa after-taste in the wines crafted from these vineyards. All the fruit is hand harvested at optimum ripeness, fermented and fortified in small lagars, barrel matured in large seasoned oak barrels for 12 months to craft this distinctive full-bodied Cape Vintage.
