An unusual and rarely cultivated variety which was widely grown in the 18th century, but is now almost extinct, this is a lighter red with a fresh bite of acidity.
Aromas of cranberry, clove, red liquorice, white pepper, red plums and raspberry all at once. It opens up to give purple fruits and soft tannins on the palate. Overall it is a light, clean and refreshing red wine with firmness, fine acid and tannins. Matches well with salads. The wine is crisp and will be delicious lightly chilled.

Critic Scores & reviews
"A rare 100% Bastardo wine from old vines, this is light in colour, a sign that the grape ripens early. It is soft and full of red berry fruits and the lightest touch of tannins. The wine is crisp and will be delicious lightly chilled."

Portuguese wine is the result of traditions introduced to the region by ancient civilizations, such as the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Greeks, and mostly the Romans. Portugal started to export its wines to Rome during the Roman Empire. Modern exports developed with trade to England after the Methuen Treaty in 1703.
And, in 1758, one of the first wine-producing regions of the world, the Região Demarcada do Douro was created under the orientation of Marquis of Pombal, in the Douro Valley. Portugal has two wine producing regions protected by UNESCO as World Heritage: the Douro Valley Wine Region (Douro Vinhateiro) and Pico Island Wine Region (Ilha do Pico Vinhateira). Portugal has a big variety of local kinds, producing a very wide variety of different wines with a distinctive personality. Portugal possesses a large array of native varietals, producing an abundant variety of different wines though most famously the nation produces Port and Moscatel wines. The wide array of Portuguese grape varietals contributes as significantly as the soil and climate to wine differentiation, producing unique and intriguing wines from the Northern regions to the Madeira Islands, and from Algarve to the Azores. In Portugal, only some grape varietals or castas are authorized or endorsed in the Demarcated regions.
The appellation system of the Douro region was created nearly two hundred years before that of France, in order to protect its superior wines from inferior ones. The quality and great variety of wines in Portugal are due to noble castas, microclimates, soils and proper technology.
It might be useful some terms in Portuguese wine like Branco is White, Tinto is red, Espumante is sparkling wine where the word Seco means dry and Quinta means vineyard.
The richness of the Douro region and its promotion can be developed into new fields using the different characteristics that make it unique in the world - its geography, soil and microclimate; the numerous different high quality native grape varieties; the different style of wines those grapes can produce from all styles of Port and other fortified wines (Muscatels) to white and red still wines; all the different properties (Quintas) and their ancient history all serve to accentuate and enhance the uniqueness of the region.
