VINIFICATION AND AGEING

The grapes of the different varieties selected are harvested according to their ideal state of maturity, in boxes of 20 kg and immediately vinified.

Stalked and transported by gravity to the fermentation vats, this takes place at moderate temperatures for 20 days with a prolonged maceration that gives this wine an extreme aromatic complexity. Its 12-month internship in new French wood gives it a remarkable complexity and elegance. The bottle matures for more than 8 months.

CONSUMPTION AND LONGEVITY

Ideal consumption temperature at 16 ° C; It accompanies meat and fish dishes from traditional Portuguese cuisine and also features characteristics of freshness and elegance ideal to be combined with fusion dishes. Guard wine, with good aging potential.
