How should one begin when the subject transcends words and defines itself with the five senses of ecstasy?
What can be said of a wine that has the Midas touch and gilds our soul? It's an embarrassing beating, as we can never say enough about this wine. Even so, we take the risk of exploring the complex world of AURU: Made from the nobility of the Tinta Roriz (50%) and Touriga Nacional (50%) varieties, planted in our vineyards facing south in the valley of the Pinhão river, it aged for 14 beautiful months in casks new French oak. Deep red, dense, opaque and impenetrable, the nose shows bright notes of ripe cassis. The tannins emerge powerfully in the mouth and the finish reveals an absolutely remarkable persistence and intensity. A superb wine.
