2016 vintage was marked by atypical weather. A warm and dry winter preceded a cold, wet spring. Summer was hot and dry, allowing for undisturbed ripening.
100% Trincadeira grown sustainably on the ancient clay over limestone soils in own vineyards surrounding our estate in Vidigueira.
This single parcel was harvested separately according to ripeness. The fruit was destemmed and gently crushed, following fermentation under temperature control for 2 weeks in stainless steel tanks, with gentle punchdowns, pumpovers and delestage. The wine matured for 8 months in used French (90%) and American (10%) oak barrels. Bottled at the estate in July 2017.
