The ideal to aim for in producing a wine is for it to be good at every stage of its evolution. This ideal only becomes possible when there is a perfect association between concentration and elegance, giving the wine its most important aspect: balance! For us, balance is the key word in production that is based on respect for the terroir. The constant search for the perfect balance allows for wines of great aromatic purity and complexity. We aim for the primordial characteristic. Even when we know that this might not be the most well-received, even knowing that this is the most demanding path to take. But that is our Concept!

This big and rich wine is succulent and generous. Firm tannins show strongly through the ripe juicy black currant fruits. Full of the strong minerality typical of the Douro, this wine and its dry core still needs time to age. Drink from 2018.

The 2012 Estate Tinto is revisited this issue as part of the vertical of Conceito's Estate red. This lacks the depth of some vintages, but it is fresh, lifted, graceful and powerful. In other words, the same type of profile we saw with the 2011. Beautifully focused, vigorous and a bit astringent at the moment, this has closed up since I last saw it. Handling its oak well, it demonstrates how fine it will be one day. It would really help if you could give it a couple of years before opening it, though. This is a young puppy whose best days are well in front of it. It may not have the same depth as some years, but its fresh feel and serious backbone will serve it well.
