The vineyard planted in Quinta da Bacalhôa finds the ideal “terroir” for the production of excellent wines – red and well drained calcareous soils with mild climate due to the strong Atlantic influence. The grapes chosen in the Quinta’s vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot benefit from natural conditions for slow and balanced maturation. In 2012, both Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon presented to the harvest, very healthy grapes, very ripe, with round and present tannins. The vintage was normal given the great quality of the grapes. After the fermentation of the elementary wines at controlled temperature, a period of “cuvaison” (post-fermentative skin maceration) of one week occurred. With a careful selection, contemplating numerous tests and analyzes, the final lot was created that staged in new French oak barrels for 12 months.
