Vinification Process

This wine is produced in our winery with carefully selected grapes from the best vineyards of the Vinhos Verdes. The grapes are pressed at low temperatures and the must is then clarified and fermented at controlled temperatures (12 to 14ºC). Before bottling, the wine is filtered and cold stabilized.

Description

Considered by many as the most noble red grape variety of Portugal, small and elongated bunch, has tiny round berries of non uniform size, pulp nuts, succulent flavor peculiar. Red color and lively, strawberry and red currant flavor complemented with floral hints reveal the exuberance of the aroma. In the mouth it's well balanced with good acidity and fresh fruit notes. Long and powerful finish.
