The grapes were selected from certified vines for the production of D.O.C. wines from the sub-region of Borba. The harvest was performed manually during the mornings to achieve the ideal temperature of the grapes as they arrived in the winery. The grapes were then destemmed and slightly crushed, process after which a peculiar maceration was performed in stainless steel vats for 12 hours at a controlled temperature of 10ºC. After the sangria and slight pressing, the tear must ferments in stainless steel vats at a controlled temperature of 15ºC. The stabilisation through the cold method and the final filtration then follow. The wine is immediately bottled to maintain its fruitiness, freshness and persistence in flavour.
