Vinification techniques
Grapes come from the Douro Superior Region from our Quinta da Cabreira . Are hand picked and transported to the winery in small plastic crates. Prior to destemming they are put on a conveyor belt in order to carefully select the best quality fruit for the fermentation. The fermentation is carried out in open plunging tanks along with a number of specially designed fermentation vessels which enhance the mouth feel of the wine. Near completion of primary fermentation the skins are pressed with a basket press in order to extract soft tannins from the skins with all pressing combined with the free run.
 
Ageing
12 months in 225 litres French oak barrels.
