Winemaking: Setúbal Roxo 20 Year Old, exquisite dessert wine produced in Portugal on the Setúbal Peninsula, a region south of Lisbon which was recognised as a D.O.C. in 1907. This grape variety is almost extinct, existing only in a small vineyard in Azeitão. This is a purple grape variety, with an intense spicy aroma and a very concentrated and fruity palate. This wine is a blend of 4 vintages, where the youngest wine is 23 years old and, the oldest, 80 years old. Ageing takes place in used oak, since the truly important result is oxidation and not the oak aroma. VINIFICATION Fermentation stops after brandy is added. Skin contact for 5 months. AGEING In used oak to increase the process of oxidation. No bottle ageing is required due to its oxidative stage.
