Tasting Notes 

At Quinta do Vallado, there are three types of Blackbird and these protected species served as inspiration for the name and label of this wine. Concentrated, with balsamic notes of oak wood and red fruits. Good structure, fleshy with round tannins. Persistent with a fresh finish.

Grape variety: Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, Sousão & old vines.

Vinification: The grapes were hand-picked and fermented in 10.000 kg and 5.000 kg stainless steel tanks and a small part in granite "lagares". The grapes fermented under controlled temperature varying between 23º and 25ºC with mechanical remontage for one week.

Ageing: 45% aged for 16 months in 225 litres French oak barrels; the remaining 55% aged for the same period in stainless steel tanks.
