The grapes from several very old vineyards in the Alto Douro Wine Region (Mêda), were pressed into a whole bunch, in order to extract the freshest and most vibrant must possible. Keeping the origin of each vine, the musts followed the alcoholic fermentation in new 500L French oak barrels. Fermentation process from indigenous yeasts, brings more complexity and character to wines. Long maturation in total lees (12 months). Malolactic partial make up the Burgundian inspiration route.
