The grapes are harvested manually for small boxes; from a single harvest its vinification is processed according to the traditional method of Port Wine.

This wine, as it is produced, has a great potential for aging.

Store and Serve Advices:
One should keep the bottled on the horizontal position, at a constant temperature and away from intense direct light. As the wine ages in the bottle, with time it may form some natural sediment in the bottle, so it should be carefully opened and decanted, before being served. Unfiltered wine; once the bottle is opened it should be consumed in the same day, as any wine of kept. After the decantation process, the wine will open and will reach its peak, next it will gradually loose its freshness, changing the tasting notes.. Should be consumed at a temperature between 16º C to 18º C.

Food Pairing:
Goes very well with strong cheeses such as Stilton, Roquefort, Danish blue, Portuguese Serra, among others. It can also be served with fruit or chocolate desserts, or eventually a good cigar.
