2005 Vallado Adelaide red
Produced as a tribute to Dona Antónia Adelaide Ferreira, this is a unique wine, as it is produced from the grapes obtained from a vineyard, planted in the 1940s and located next to the Torto River. This vineyard has the particularity of representing a field blend with more than 30 grape varieties such as Touriga Franca, Rufete, Tinta Roriz, Tinta Amarela, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Nascida, Malvasia Preta, Mourisco, Bastardo, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Bairrada, Tinta da Barca, Tinta Francisca, Tinta Carvalha, Moscatel de Hamburgo, Tinta Pomar, Piriquita, Moreto, Sultanina, São Saúl, Casculho, and Preto Martinho.
A very rare wine, only produced in exceptional years, and in very small quantities, it presents a very concentrated aroma, with balsamic notes of oak, figs, black plums, and tobacco. In the mouth, it is full-bodied, firm, mature and with satiny tannins, finishing mineral, complex, persistent, and elegant.
