Concept


Preta, produced since 2004, only in the years when Nature allows, was always made in a complementarity between David and Antonio until the 2011 harvest. David Booth, founding partner, viticulturist and an exceptional human being, left too soon. The Preta, "Cuvée David Booth" since 2013, is our best effort to produce a wine that makes David proud. This is our tribute.

The Preta was produced in the years 2004, 2005, 2007, 2008, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2017, 2018 and 2019.

Production


5,536 bottles of 0.75L and 232 bottles of 1.5L, numbered and released in October 2022.

Soils


The vineyards are grown on very poor soils of schist or granite origin, naturally giving rise to very concentrated grapes.

Viticulture


The grapes are grown either under organic production or under Certified Integrated Production without the use of herbicides, being most of them in rainfed conditions, without irrigation. Our vineyards are also all certified within the Alentejo's sustainability program.

Vinification


Manual harvest in 18kg boxes. After sorting, the grapes are destemmed and slightly crushed. The grapes fall directly into the vat by gravity, without using pumps. Cold pre-maceration until fermentation begins spontaneously. Total maceration about 40 days.

Aging


24 months in French oak, 30% new oak 70% second and third use French oak.

Storage and Service


Keep at 14ºC and serve at 16ºC to drink at 18ºC.
