"Very old vines – 100 years – 50/50 Maria Gomes and Bical, fermented in a single old 2,500 litre oak cask, aged 6-8 months in oak and unfined and unfiltered.
From magnum. Good year for reds and whites, apparently. More structure and less aroma than in the 2014. Amazing freshness and intensity, so streamlined, dry and long. 17/20 points. (JH)"
Vinous Reverie Notes
This wine's grapes come from old vines. It is vinified through fermentation of skins, where the must is placed in small decanters of 1 m3, remaining there for 24 to 36 hours to be decanted through natural precipitation. At the end of the process, the must is transferred to old wooden 2 500 L tonels responsible for hundreds of fermentations. It is bottled without any type of filtration or fining (clarification process, dragging the proteins out), not always in the same month, letting the wine itself decide when it is ready for bottling. We wait for the wine instead of forcing it.
