Senses Syrah

Winemaker: Óscar Gato
Grape varieties: 100% Syrah

Soil: Chalky-clay and schist

Vinification: Syrah is a variety which adapts well to hot climates. It is in the Alentejo region, more particularly in Borba, that Syrah can meet the exceptional conditions for its development and expression of its sensory characteristics – freshness and maturity. 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 de-stemmed and fermented with complete maceration in stainless steel lagares (wine presses) at a controlled temperature of 25 ºC, after which the malolactic fermentation took place in stainless steel vats.

Ageing: For the wine to gain more complexity and a balanced structure, the wine aged for 9 months in new French oak barrels and for about 4 months in the bottle.
