Winemaking:
The 2014 viticultural year was characterised by a year of less quantity but of best quality. Everything indicated that it would be a premature year, due to the good amount of water accumulated in the winter and spring. The maturation phase was premature, which has allowed harvest to begin in August. All plots were harvested during a period of nice weather, from 23 August to 21 September. Sourced from vineyards situated on the right side of the Douro river, the grapes were transported in a refrigerated truck during the night. Following careful selection at the winery's entrance, the grapes were delicately pressed at low temperature, to avoid oxidation and the extraction of gross lees. After a natural decantation of about 24 hours, part of the must fermented in French oak barrels and the rest in stainless steel vats during 8 months, with its wild yeasts. It was bottled in May 2015.
