It is by sheer coincidence that we follow the sequence of producing every five years – after 2005 and 2010 – a red Garrafeira. Made from the very best Touriga-Nacional grapes harvested from the oldest plot of our Quinta das Marias, we carefully crafted an extraordinary wine that you can keep for 15 years without any problems, provided you do not succomb to the temptation to taste it before, what is most likely!
