Vineyard Management

Production follows the protocols of sustainable agriculture with yields being controlled for top quality by hard pruning, removal of secondary shoots, and bunch thinning. At optimum maturity the grapes are hand-picked in small boxes permitting the quality control operations of bunch selection in the vineyard and on the sorting table. Vinification and Ageing: After sorting and crushing the grapes are conveyed by gravity into small vats and fermented by only indigenous yeast at 27ºC. Post fermentation maceration lasts for 21 days. The wine is matured for 18 months in French oak barrels.

Terroir

Grapes develop and mature in the hot and dry Mediterranean climate of the southern Portuguese plateau. The cool nights serve to retain acidity. Soils are infertile rocky schists, producing naturally low yields of concentrated, healthy fruit.
