Owned by the same family for the past couple of centuries, Quinta da Silveira boasts 70 hectares of vineyards. Winemaker Rodrigo Martins uses traditional methods including foot trodding (when grapes are crushed by feet) and fermentation with indigenous yeasts to produce wines of the highest order.
Sourced from old vines and produced using traditional methods including grapes crushed by feet and fermentation in open tanks (lagares) using natural yeasts. Aged for 18 months in new French oak barrels. Intense aromas of violets, red cherry, mocha and cedar and an unctuous palate with soft tannins and a floral finish.
