Characteristics

Concept: The grapes in the Conventual Reserva red come from various vines located in the mountains of São Mamede at an
altitude between 500 and 600 mts. In these vineyards, you can mainly find the grapes Alicante Bouschet and Touriga
Nacional. The freshness and fruit concentration alongside with its harmony and softness reflects its true character.

steel vats and winepress with controlled temperature at 25ºC. Maceration is post fermentation. Malolactic
fermentation is made in stainless steel vats.
