Mineral and citrus fruitiness, grapefruit, hints of nettle and white flowers, very fresh and light on the palate, revealing the altitude of the vineyards. The soul of this wine lies in the unique combination of the Síria and Fonte Cal native grape varieties, from old vines planted in granite and schist soils with quartz veins, in the Douro River’s hydrographical basin, at an average altitude of 700 metres.
Excellent as an aperitif, with appetisers, grilled fish and shellfish and to share with friends.

In 2011 I returned to the same winery where in 1987 I worked my first harvest, a small winery located in the village of Vermiosa, between the cold and in the highest vineyards in Portugal. I rehabilitated the property, because I believed that this region's winemaking heritage is one of the most hidden treasures of Portuguese wines: old vines of native grape varieties perfectly adapted to the rugged climate caused by the high altitude, along with the soil, where many veins of quartz run through the schist and granite. Through Beyra wines, I seek the Beira Interior's identity: wines of great complexity resulting from the combination of aromatic intensity, minerality and freshness.
