Concentrated garnet color. Fresh and of great aromatic complexity, wild fruits, bush, rock rose, resin, earth and some leather with more balsamic nuances. In the mouth it is extremely elegant, with volume and very expressive ripe fruit, an Alentejo classic. Firm tannins and good acidity, very balanced and enveloping from beginning to end.

The Tapada do Chaves estate, with a total area of 60 hectares, is located in the hamlet of Frangoneiro in the outskirts of the town of Portalegre in northern Alentejo and has been making wine for nearly a century. There are 32 hectares of land under vines planted on granite soils on the hill side of the São Mamede Mountain, 23 of which with red varieties and nine with white. The estate benefits from a microclimate derived from the low altitude of its vineyard which in turn contributes to a slow maturation of the grapes and the youth and freshness of its white wines, and local Mediterranean-type forestry. Both make the "terroir" that identify its wines. Not many Alentejo wineries have century vineyards, as Tapada do Chaves seems to be unique in Alentejo. Its origins go back to the turn of the 20th century when the Chaves family planted the first vines on his small estate ("Tapada", or enclosure). Presently, and despite different vineyards renovation during time, there are still two original old vineyards with low yield productions, dating back to 1901(red grapes) and 1903 (white grapes).
