Cultus (Latin) means cultivation, growth promotion, neatness; culture, polish, splendour, style; devotion to a person or thing, veneration.
Cultus is the result of a winemaker’s ability to master Nature’s gifts, of patiently waiting for the right time to act and to know how to create wines that leave a mark.
2015 was a great year. It was the year that we were lucky enough to harvest both the early grapes of Aragonez (Tempranillo) and the late variety of Tinta Caiada, all in perfect weather conditions! That uncommon feat brought us this wine, with very distinct notes of strawberry, cherry and wild berry jams, involved in the sweet fruity freshness, black chocolate and light minty flavours of the varieties Alfrocheiro and Alicante Bouschet.
This Cultus is a typically Alentejano wine. It’s a totally natural wine that was handmade and deliberately produced without barrel, in order to unveil all its natural qualities. With a production of only 6000 bottles, Cultus is the expression of our devotion to make wines that are works of art. Full-bodied, with a very dark ruby colour, Cultus is a young, soft and very pleasant wine – full of splendour!
