  • Made from a blend of local red Portuguese grape varieties grown in the Douro Valley. Traditional techniques are used with vinification taking places over 2-3 days. Fermentation starts automatically after a few hours and continues for 24-36 hours until stopped by the addition of grape brandy. The fortified wine is then transferred to barrel for clarification and ageing.
