The grapes from the Douro Superior were transported in food plastic boxes and subjected to rigorous sorting at the entrance to the cellar. They were subsequently destemmed and pressed. The pressed wort was transferred to a stainless steel vat where it was kept at a temperature of 8ºC for 48 hours until decanting. Then the alcoholic fermentation started in a stainless steel vat and then the wine was transferred to French oak barrels where the fermentation ended at a temperature of 14ºC for a period of 45 days.
Lemon coloured wine with slight golden touches. It has an excellent aromatic expression on the nose, with citrus notes well integrated with elegant floral notes and a vibrant minerality. It starts in the mouth very fresh, evolving into an excellent volume wine, composed of fine textured tannins, well wrapped in retro nasal aromas of citrus fruits and pleasant sensations of minerality. An elegant wine that finishes seductive and with excellent persistence, and that due to its natural acidity, it should evolve very positively in the bottle.
