Quote – “You can tell this is going to be a top-of-the-range wine by the heavy bottle. Named after the apple orchard that was the original vineyard of the producer, it is powerful and concentrated, with blackberry fruits and a solid, firm texture that will soften. Drink from 2018” (ROGER VOSS, European Editor. Reviews wines from Portugal and France)
