Designation: Regional Alentejano
Grape varieties:Trincadeira, Aragonez, Castelão and Touriga Franca

Winemaker: Óscar Gato

Vinification: The harvest period occurs in the beginning of September. The grapes are destemmed and crushed. The alcoholic fermentation then takes place at a controlled temperature of 25ºC. During this period the maceration occurs for 7 days by using the pumping method so as to optimise the extraction of colour, aromas and flavours. The next phase is the malolactic fermentation which is a very important step that allows the wine to become softer and smoother. After the period during which the wine stabilises by using physical processes in stainless steel vats, the wine is filtered before being bottled in the following spring.
