Vinification

To compose this special wine Reserva, which is one of the oldest trademark from the region of Alentejo, we pre-selected very carefully grapes from the oldest vine to follow rigorously their maturation evolution. Only the best ones were harvested, exclusively manually. In the vinification center, they were crushed, fermented and left in prolonged contact with the skins for 10-12 days to extract all the fruit complexity and aroma. The malolactic fermentation occured with a part in stainless steel vats and the remainder in wooden casks. The selected final blend matured for 12 months in new French and American oaken casks to gain more structure and complexity and then for 6 months in bottles in our cellar.
