Senses Petit Verdot

Winemaker: Óscar Gato
Grape varieties: 100% Petit Verdot
Soil: Chalky-clay and schist
 
Vinification: Wine produced from the Petit Verdot grape, one of the most recent additions to the Alentejo vineyard plot. The vines where this grape is planted have increased considerably in the past few years. The grapes were selected through a rigorous control of the maturation phase. In the winery, after the manual harvesting and the careful transport, the grapes were destemmed and fermented with complete maceration in stainless steel lagares (wine presses) at
a controlled temperature of 25ºC, after which the malolactic fermentation took place in stainless steel vats. For the wine to gain more complexity and a balanced structure, the wine aged for 12 months in new American and Portuguese oak and Chestnut casks.
