|Vineyard||Vineyard plots located on the steep slopes of River Pinhão banks, between 150m and 400m altitude, with a poor and rugged shale soil of low production and high concentration and grape quality.|
|Winemaking||Fresh and matured to perfection grapes, harvested by hand to 20kg boxes. Destemmed and softly crush, the grapes were placed in stainless steel vats, where maceration took place during 5 days, with three daily "delestage" , and the steeping post "água-ardente" lasted three days. From this process resulted a fine wine, aged in french oak barrels. The Blend was made in march 2000.|
