The grapes come from selected high-altitude vineyards (1,250 feet) throughout the Douro Valley. After soft-crushing and destemming, the grapes are transferred to stainless steel tanks, where alcoholic fermentation takes place at controlled temperatures (58°F) for an average of 7 days. The wine remains in stainless steel tanks after malolactic fermentation for 6 months prior to the assemblage of the final blend at the end of winter.
Ideal with poultry, charcuterie, pork, cheeses, a variety of pastas and rich salads.
