Saroto Tinto is made from a small, old, field-blend parcel comprised of old-fashioned red and white Douro varieties. The grapes were hand harvested, foot trodden in a tradicional lagar and macerated for 4 days allowing the juice to start fermenting naturally with indigenous yeast and without temperature control. After this the grapes were pressed and racked into used French Oak Barrels where fermentation was finished. The wine aged for 9 months in these barrels on fine lees.

 

The resultant wine is full of wild forest fruit, with plenty of fresh acidity that adds juiciness and balances the grippy tannins, making for quite a light red. Earthy minerality adds extra complexity too.
