VINIFICATION
The harvest took place in the second week of September. The grapes were hand harvested to small 18Kg (40 lbs) boxes, following a careful selection of the best grapes in the vineyard. The grapes were totally destemmed. The fermentation took place in opened barrels at a coolness temperature of the room controlled naturally. After that the wine was transferred to the oak French barrels where it spent 18 months.

 

 


 

PRESS NOTES
REVISTA DE VINHOS: Great and aromatic elegancy with very delicate and perfectly balanced fruit and hints of smokes and spicies. It has great quality tannins, very polished with the delicate and fresh profile. Fine, vibrant, delicious.
