Produced using the Baga grape, planted in chalky-clay soils using vines with an average age of 40 years old. A first harvest takes place at the end of August for the production of sparkling wine (‘Espumante') from the same grapes. This increases the concentration and improves the maturation of the remaining grapes which are harvested at the end of September to produce Vinhas Velhas.
Vinified in stainless steel vats for 10 days and matured in used casks (650l of capacity) for 12 months.
To be served with gamey meats as well as other red meat dishes. It will last more than 15 years.

Deeply structured with red currants and sloe/mulberry notes, rather delicious.
Convento do Paraiso's second wine offers all the great ripeness and flavour of their top wine, but is more approachable young. Plummy, berry fruit mixes with a touch of toasty spice from 9 months in used french oak.
Fresh, velvety-textured tannins and fine acidity. Pleasant notes of wild berry fruit and delicate floral sensations. The finish is fresh and lingering.

Concentrated and powerful, packed with wild cherry flavours and supple tannins.
A smooth velvety character with mature fruit. Good ageing potential.
On the palate there is a plush core of dense, sweetly ripe dark fruit, laced with chocolate and spice. Generously rich flavours underpinned by supple oak tannins and a full, dry and savoury finish.
