The windy and dry soils of the Estate are mainly of granite, sandy and very poor in nutrients. Here I grew my first vineyard, always believing that the granite soils give us wines with highly complex aromas and great longevity, like in the old times, with very concentrated grapes due the low yields. This is a tradition that we want to bring back to a world of increasingly stereotyped wines, and that emphasizes the unique character of the Douro’s white wines. Vinification: Hand-picked grapes to small perforated boxes of 15 kg. The grapes are pressed without crushing and without destemming under an inert atmosphere in order to preserve all the aromatic potential of the grapes. A great effort is made to ensure that all prefermentation operations are carried out to the strictest possible extent and are therefore responsible for the intrinsic quality of the future wine preserving its primary aromas. Ageing: Fermentation and ageing stirring the fine lees “batonnage” in French oak barrels of 500 Lts until bottling in June.
