Lapa dos Gaivões Grande Reserve Red

Terroir: The vineyards are planted on very poor, finely textured acidic soils.

The challenging growing environment produces very low yields (3tonnes/ha) of concentrated grapes that make wines of great complexity, elegance and minerality.
Grapes: Touriga Nacional mainly
Vinification: Pre-fermentation maceration at low temperatures.Primary fermentation lasted 10 days bellow 24ºC at mill stone.
Bottling: April 2011. 2.076 bottles
