Vinha Rumilã is made with grapes from a small plot of very old vines, which also gives the wine its name, in Quinta de São Luiz – the historic vineyard whose whitewashed walls have sustained the vines and the know-how of several generations of winemakers. The combination of the very low yield of these vines (more than a hundred years old), the wine's ageing in wood for over two years plus another couple of years in the bottle and the winemaker's curatorship results in a unique, expressive and rather complex character.
Deep ruby in colour, this wine reveals an engaging aromatic expression, full of elegance and complexity, with notes of wild
berries and hints of spice and floral suggestions. In the mouth, its elegance and expressiveness is asserted by silky tannins and an acidity that gives it definition and minerality. A remarkable Grande Reserva that extends into a wonderful finish.
