- Vinification:The grapes come from the Cima Corgo and Douro Superior subregions. They are hand-harvested and taken to the winery, where they are rigorously inspected on a sorting table. The grapes are then destemmed and gently crushed. Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel conic vats. Rack and return is performed during fermentation. This French technique means that the juice is drained from the fermenting vat leaving the cap behind. The fermenting juice is then pumped back over the cap, maximising the skin contact. The result is a concentrated, complex wine that is also elegant and stylish.
- Ageing:About 18 months in French oak barrels.
- Tasting notes:Offers an elegant beginning, evolving into a wine of excellent volume and structure, made of velvety tannins. This is an engaging wine, with a fresh, lingering finish.
