The Stone Vineyard is a smaller plot of land within our oldest vineyard, “Clos Fonte do Santo”. The vines here are approximately 90 years old and the vineyard is located in the village of Ervedosa do Douro. As with all of our vineyards, it is farmed using biodynamic practices. In keeping with traditional methods in the Douro valley, this vineyard features a field blend of only native Portuguese indigenous grape varieties. The steep hillside location of the vineyard, with its schist soil composition, ranges in altitude from 450 to 600 meters and faces northeast.
Ruby color with a nose of a strong fruity expression. The aromatic notes of ripe red fruits, such as strawberries, blackberries and red plums, are notorious. The location of the vines that originate the Stone Vineyard are responsible for a slightly longer maturation, causing the sensorial perception of more matured red fruits, with some very balanced structure. The minerality conferred by the terroir of Fonte do Santo allows an elegant tasting.
Grapes: Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca
