PRODUCT OVERVIEW: 
João Portugal Ramos, the man behind today's offer, was instrumental in changing the course of Portugal's wine industry. The country's premier consulting winemaker for decades as well as the owner of several wineries under the João Portugal Ramos Vinhos umbrella, Ramos was the driving force behind the mass adaptation of modern winemaking technologies and low yields, both of which have greatly increased the quality of wines coming out of this tiny but mighty country.

Alentejo is a large geographical area in Portugal located south of the Tejo River that encompasses about 30% of the country's landmass. Its growing season is, for the most part, hot and dry, but its diversity of soils and terrain make it hospitable to many grape varietals. Alentejo received DOC status in 2003, thus enhancing the region's reputation as a producer of high-quality wines.

Today's offer is an old vine blend of arinto, roupeiro, antão vaz, and alvarinho grown in soils of limestone and schist, fermented in stainless steel, and aged for 8 months in a combination of French and Hungarian oak barrels. It is rich and full-bodied, with aromas and flavors of apples, citrus fruits, and hazelnuts laced with accents of vanilla, toast, minerals, and wet stone.

91 points, Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"This wood-aged blend of old vines is finely textured, ripe with white fruits that round out the acidity. Spice from the wood adds complexity and richness. Drink from 2023."
