Vinification

Although the culture of Touriga Nacional is recent in Alentejo, this important variety of the Portuguese patrimony has already shown that we can obtain excellent results in South Portugal too. From the few but exceptional vineyards with Touriga Nacional, the best grapes were selected after a strict maturation control. In the winery, the process of alcoholic fermentation, with a prolonged skins contact during the first days, occurred at the temperature of 25ºC. Then the malolactic fermentation proceeded in stainless steel vats too. To gain better structure and complexity, the wine matured for 9 months in new French oaken casks and then for 4 months in bottles.
