Tinta Roriz, Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional
Vineyards & Viticulture
The Batuta is a wine produced from two old vineyards with different altitudes and aspects. From north-facing old (70+ years) vineyards from Quinta do Carril and older vines (about 100 years) near Quinta de Nápoles on the Tedo river, planted at an altitude of 750m.
Harvest & Vinification
The grapes were manually harvested in August and September. After the fruit was meticulously sorted in the vineyard as well as in the cellar, fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks, with a skin contact period of approximately 80 days. Following this long maceration period, the wine matured for about 20 months in French barriques, with 50% new wood. Batuta is made only in exceptional vintages.
