Grapes: Touriga Franca, Tinta Roriz, Rufete, Malvazia Preta e outras.
Batuta was first released in 1999 with the intention of revealing an impressive yet elegant Douro wine. “Batuta”, meaning the baton used by an orchestral conductor, proved to be the perfect name.
The fruit comes from Quinta do Carril, a north-facing vineyard with more than 70 years, near Quinta de Nápoles and also from two other vineyards that are over 100 years old, planted at an altitude of 750 metres. Batuta is a perfect blend: powerful, elegant, with a superb harmony and a great ageing potential.
After careful selection, both in the vineyard and the winery, fermentation took place in cone-shaped stainless steel vats and wooden barrels, with maceration for around 60 days. The wine aged for 22 months in French oak barrels, with 25% new oak, where malolactic fermentation took place.
The Batuta 2013 shows a beautiful, intense, and vivid ruby colour. Deep and complex aroma, though slightly tight, its mineral and wild berries profile is in full harmony with the woody notes. With the time spent in glass, the wine will show several layers, in a very elegant way, with fresh spices, such as black pepper and clove. Fine and elegant in the mouth, with silky texture and firm structure, it shows very polished and luxurious tannins. Deep and multidimensional. Despite being young, impresses by its balance. Very fine, long and seductive finish. It will age with great class.
