The grapes are handpicked; they originate from a single harvest and the winemaking process follows the traditional methods for producing Port Wine.
After the grapes are partially stripped, they are crushed by foot in old stone bin called a “lagare”.
Fermentation occurs at a controlled temperature and is stopped when brandy (firewater) is added. This wine has tremendous aging potential.
Tawny with orange nuances. Well balanced, good acidity and freshness, with aromas of grapes, dried fruits and some vanilla.
