One more product of great quality and image presentation, which associates prestige and exclusiveness, to our portfolio. From our stocks of Aguardente Vínica we selected one lot that will constitute the base for the Serradayres Old Aguardente Vínica .
Our winemakers selected in our stocks a lot of Aguardente Vínica distilled from wines of the Ribatejo region.
The aging made in oak barrels of 550 L, it has medium age to up to 5 years, being done in our facilities at Rio Maior.
The production ⁄ Exclusiveness
The estimated bottling average each year is 12000 bottles, what guarantees the quality and exclusiveness.
The Serradayres Old Aguardente Vínica , comes in a Fidjy type bottle that values its presentation.
In the tasting Serradayres presents a limpid aspect, old gold color, intense aroma combining the wood with vanilla notes and the alcohol. It enters strong in the mouth, but quickly turns to a soft flavor, intense, long with complexity.
We suggested as excellent digestive at the end of a meal, being an excellent complement of a good coffee espresso, cigar or a heavy and strong dessert.
It should be served to the temperature of 16th – 18ºC, in a thin brandy glass.
