This style of wine is usually reffered to as "farmer's wine" with blend on indigenous grape varieties in varying amounts, it's got a ripen nose with floral slightly salty palate. Great sense of freshness and minerality on the palate with slight nuttiness from the short time with oak barrel.
Trained as a chef, little did Vitor know that he would get the wine bug when he worked with Dirk Niepoort at one of his restaurants. A trip to the town of Portalegre in the Alentejo few years later turned the tide, as he fell in love with some very old vineyards and could not help but buy some grapes and give winemaking a stab. The vineyards in question are at 650m altitude, north facing and with an average vine age of 85 years. He makes his wines as field blends, even including a percentage of white grapes in the reds.
