Wine Concept

Entry point wine with a fresh and fruity profile, obtained from blending a wide range of wines to guarantee a consistent quality.

Agriculture

Integrated Production (certificate)

A dry winter followed by above average temperatures in spring and summer, gave rise to an early start to the harvest. Although temperatures continued to be high, there was no extreme heat during the vintage, and the dry conditions were excellent for fruit quality, producing wines with intense, persistent, aromatic fruit.

Grape Varieties

Castelão, Moreto, Trincadeira

Vinification / Maturation

Destemming, crushing, fermentation temperature control in stainless steel tanks, pneumatic pressing, malolactic fermentation.

4 months in stainless steel tanks.
