VINEYARD: Caves Messias. Established in 1926, this family-owned business is notorious for producing fantastic wines from the main regions in Portugal: Bairrada, Douro, Dão, Vinho Verde, Beiras and Vinho do Porto. The company offers a wide range of wines and spirits, having gained popularity for their Champagnes, sparkling wines, and aged brandies.
GRAPES: Touriga Nacional, Tinta Barroca, Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca, and Tinto Cão.
PREPARATION: The grapes are carefully harvested and collected for vinification. Upon arrival, the fruits are gently crushed and softly pressed prior to fermentation. The fermentation process is conducted at a low temperature in stainless steel vats until the must reaches the desired sweetness. Brandy is then added to the must to stop fermentation. This is a young wine, sweet and strong, yet of a delicate nature.
PAIRING: Ideal to accompany many fruit and chocolate based desserts, and caramel treats.
RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE: 14-16°C
