Specially selected from granite soil high altitude Grade-A vineyards.
Grapes are cold stored overnight at 10ºC before being crushed with stalks (100%) in the granite lagares at Quinta da Gricha. Light maceration by foot treading and fermentation on the skins. After fermentation, the wine goes through an ageing period in seasoned oak casks for approximately 10 years.
Filtered and ready to drink now. Once opened, it will keep well for at least one month.
Serve chilled (8º -10º C) straight from the bottle. No need to decant.
