Alcohol: 38% Vol.
Winemaking: Antiqua VSOP is an aguardente rich in mellow and fruity aromas. For the VSOP, Aliança Vinhos de Portugal selects really special eaux-de-vie to strengthen the aromatic richness as it ages.
Ageing in oak barrels specially selected by Aliança ensures a great mellowness of character and richness of flavor, accented with delicate woody notes. The barrels used are medium toasted, preserving the original aromas of the eaux-de-vie and producing an aguardente with admirable poise and balance.
Aging: 5 years in Portuguese oak barrels.
Tasting notes: The nose boasts prominent dried fruits intermingled with subtle yellow fruit notes and coffee. On the palate this Aguardente displays a remarkable balance between smoothness and structure, enhanced by vanilla and light woody notes acquired over the 5 years of ageing.
Gastronomy: Antiqua is a great drink to finish a plentyful meal.
