Vinification:
The grapes are harvested manually in September in 20 kg boxes. In the basement, before being pressed, they spend 12 hours in a cooling chamber at 10ºC. The grapes are then gently pressed in a vertical press. Fermentation takes place in 600L (40%) Austrian and French oak barrels. The rest is made in cement vats, followed by fermentation with indigenous yeasts. During the maturation process, the wine does not move to respect the character of the grapes. This wine is produced from 7 different plots, with an average age of 30 years, in the area of ​​Muxagata (Douro Superior). It matures for 9 months.
