Winemaking: The clusters were hand-harvested and carefully sorted at the winery. All grapes were destemmed and slightly crush. Fermentation took place in the tradicional small open-top tanks (lagares), with controlled temperature, where the cap of skins was punched down gently ensuring a soft mouthfeel.
Tasting notes: Fragrant red fruit is layered with a soft note of black pepper. A refreshing acidity and fine tannins gives the wine a delicious and juicy finish. Perfect to go along with cheerful and relaxed moments.
