The grapes come from the emblematic Vinha do Taco and Vinha da Sobreira. These vineyards are non-irrigated, and therefore have profound root systems which allows for a good maturation of the grapes.
Fermented with indigenous yeasts to best express our vineyards and soils. Aged for one year in used barrels.
