The vinification philosophy was to respect the grapes and nature and focus on seeking the expression of the terroir of Serra da Estrela, thus, no other product was used except sulphur.
Alcoholic fermentation took place in open vats with traditional treading and began naturally, with the yeast from the vine itself, to express its identity in the purest form.
Very little extraction was sought. After pressing, the wine was placed directly into used 600L barrels (Stockinger), where malolactic fermentation took place until the following spring and where it aged for 18 months.
The bottling was carried out in July 2020
This wine expresses the character and elegance of the land that witnessed its birth and takes us on a journey through time to discover the aromas and flavours of Serra da Estrela foothills, just as it was in the late nineteenth century.
Pure, great identity, complex, granite wrapped fresh red fruit, white cherry, sensations of aromatic herbs, flowers and pine forest. Deep, fresh and tasty mouth, silky tannins, finesse. Endless mineral finish.
A “Grand Cru” of Dão Serra da Estrela.
