These wines express the unique characteristics of each grape variety planted at Ravasqueira. They combine the new world oenology with the elegance of the old world’s traditional wines, highlighting the concentration and freshness that characterise the Ravasqueira terroir, thus enabling a great potential for ageing in bottle.
They result from a limited selection of the best plants on each block, that usually produce the best berries and in smaller clusters, demonstrating an ideal balance of the vineyard for the production of high-quality wines.

With a limited production, this Alvarinho is the result of an oenology concept that materialises, every year, into the production of unique and exceptional wines that reflect the singularity and character of the terroir on which each variety is planted.
100% Alvarinho. The grapes were harvested from three specific zones of two blocks of the Monte da Ravasqueira vineyard. With no influence of wood and only under the influence of low temperatures and regular battonage, this wine has found the best way to express all its freshness, aromatic intensity, texture and ageing potential.

Tasting Notes
Colour with intense and bright greenish and lemon tones. Expressive nose with intense orange blossom, gaining expression with temperature and over time in the glass. Floral notes, lightly tropical and light white pepper, dry style with focus on freshness-acidity and texture. A very mineral character with citric notes to taste, and very long. A wine to be tried now, but with great potential for ageing.

With a limited production of 3,460 bottles, this Viognier is the result of an oenology concept that brings to fruition the production of unique and exceptional wines every year, reflecting the singularity and character of the terroir where each grape variety is planted.
100% Viognier, a grape variety of French origin that found in the thermal amplitudes of the Monte da Ravasqueira a particular and unprecedented way of expressing its freshness and intense character. Two harvests, at different dates, were made on the same block in order to take advantage of the heterogeneity of maturation, so characteristic of this caste. The work translated into two batches: the first staged without influence of wood and only under the influence of low temperatures and regular battonage, thus finding the best way to express all of its freshness; the second aged in new and used barrels of French oak, seeking to express texture and complexity.

Tasting Notes
Light green straw colour, with bright lemony tones. Intense nose of apricot and white chocolate. Profile of great intensity, mineral, spicy, and complex, with notes of matchstick head and light gunpowder. To taste, it is bulky and textured, mineral, with predominant notes of pineapple, tangerine, and a hint of mint. A wine to be appreciated now, but with great potential of guard.

A very important grape variety in the production of Port wine, that, since the 2012 harvest, acquires great relevance at Monte da Ravasqueira, both as a blend and as a monovarietal.
100% Touriga Franca. Planted in two distinct zones of medium slope. Several areas where the berries were smaller in size, higher in acidity, and had higher levels of phenolic compounds were zoned.

Tasting Notes
Closed, dark, opaque, and dense in colour. Nose with an exuberant aromatic freshness. Serious, with notes of black fruits, broom, black olive, and mineral. In the test, all of the aromatic characteristics are felt, with a long attack and volume. Spicy and growing tannins. It opens up and reveals itself with time in the glass, increasing its intensity.

Syrah and Viognier form, in particular conditions, a unique and unusual blend. This blend, originating in the north of the Rhone Valley, has spread throughout the world, emphasizing its importance in Australia. The 2012 harvest gave rise to the first wine of these two grape varieties produced at Monte da Ravasqueira.
97% Syrah, 3% Viognier. The Viognier grapes were harvested late and frozen, awaiting the Syrah harvest. Only two bunches per vine were left so that the Viognier grapes acquired an aromatic concentration. The Syrah is sourced from the Vinha das Romãs plot, but from different areas and selected according to this wine’s profile.

Tasting Notes
Dense, black colour. Nose with a mixture of peppers, ripe red fruits, tar, and a hint of light peach and apricot. Mineral, full of volume, tannins in constant balance with the vivid and vibrant acidity. Complex, with notes of mocha, coffee, and biscuit. Fine, constant tannins, with a mineral and minty prolongation.
