Production note

The grapes from the old vineyards (over 80 years old) are fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. The grapes from the younger vineyards of Sousao are foot trodden and fermented in traditional lagares. The batches are then blended to produce a well-balanced wine.
