The year 2014 probably gave the lightest and the most elegant Batuta that has been produced before, which is the result of the intent to create wines increasingly fine and with little extraction. It shows a light bright ruby colour. Deep, complex, and austere aroma. The mineral profile, with floral notes, cocoa, and wild berries are in full harmony with the woody notes. With the time spent in glass, the wine will show several layers, in a very elegant way, though slightly tight, reflecting the freshness and minerality from the centenarian vineyards. Fine and elegant in the mouth, with silky texture and firm structure, it shows very polished tannins. Despite being young, impresses by its balance and precision. Very fine, long and seductive finish. It will age with great class.
The grapes to produce this wine come from Quinta do Carril, from a north-facing vineyard with more than 70 years, and also from old vineyards about 100 years old near Quinta de Nápoles. Batuta is the result of a delicate vinification process, with long maceration but little extraction, where all the details are carefully considered in order to obtain a complex, fine and elegant wine. It has plenty of concentration from the old Douro vineyards, yet it is fresh and delicate.
