This wine was produced with selected grapes from the oldest vines in the region of Borba.After a rigorous control of the maturation of the grapes in the vine, the grapes were de-stemmed and crushed smoothly when they arrived in the winery, after which the alcoholic fermentation process followed, having been performed in stainless steel lagares (wine presses) with mechanical press- ing.The vinification process ends with maceration during 10 days at a controlled temperature of 22-25 o C.The malolactic fermentation was performed in low-volume stainless steel vats.The wine aged for six months in new French, American and chestnut oak barrels, having then been bottled and spent 6 months ageing in the bottle.
