Perfect Drinking Temperature: room temperature
It’s made from family vineyards, planted about 50 years ago. The variety Bastardo ripens very early, in fact, much earlier than any other red variety. From the first moment, Bastardo was a wine of passions, since its colour tricks a distracted eye, which gets surprised by a spicy aroma, and a round, glycerine mouth, which makes it a real pleasure at the table. This wine ages very slowly in bottle, almost showing no change over the years. Very versatile at the table, it pairs perfectly with Asian food and tomato based dishes.
Winemaking: Organic, Grapes are hand-picked and transported to the cellar in 20kg boxes, and then foot-trodden in granite lagares, with no destemming and no added yeast. Once the alcoholic fermentation is complete the wine is racked in stainless steel tanks. 10 months in stainless steel tanks--

Conceito Vinhos Douro Portugal:
"When you taste a Conceito wine, you can taste its essence - our love for nature; respect for climate and soil’s characteristics and the ambition to do the best with what our land can produce.
The subtle flavours hide the wisdom of balancing experimentalism and tradition; respecting the old vines; trusting the longevity of the wines and looking for a refreshing profile that feels like drinking, not only tasting.
Our wines have soul because they are authentic, but also because they carry the consistency of a winemaking project which involves local communities, in a partnership with shepherds and farmers, stimulating natural and organic production in the region.
Our core has remained: precision, sobriety, elegance, respect for nature and its cycles. Light but deep wines. Appealing but long lasting. Restrained; sober, yet, rewarding and sophisticated." - Conceito Vinhos
