Winemaking

This Vintage Port was produced from grapes of the oldest vines from the Quinta with an average age from between 40 and 60 years old. After a light crushing by a soft stainless steel crusher, the grapes were foot trodden in the old lagares for an average of two days at a temperature of around 20º Celsius with 50% stems. The fermentation started with natural wild yeast and lasted 48 hours with temperatures rising to 28º Celsius. When the sugar level reached 8.5º Baumé the brandy was added to stop the fermentation.
