Touriga Nacional, the main grape variety of our vine-stock selection and Tinta Roriz, which adds complexity, elegance and structure to the wine, growing on slopes at an altitude of 350-400 meters. The vine is grown within a program of integrated protection; the use of herbicides is forbidden. Infestation control is carried out through soil movement. Grape-picking is done by hand, caste by caste, when the ideal point of ripeness is reached, normally between the second fortnight of September and the first fortnight of October. The harvest is collected in small 10kg boxes.
These wines are obtained after fermentation at a controlled temperature in order to preserve all their aromatic elegance, in big wooden barrels and stainless steel tanks, for 20 days. The wine is made by malolactic fermentation in barrels of French oak and has a subsequent maturing period of 18 months in order to potentiate its structure and complexity.
