Douro Valley Portwine – Portugal
Philosophy Fresh and rich profile, with notes of complexity arising from its age. The blend includes 10 years old wines on average
The grapes, that must arrive at the cellar in perfect conditions, are immediately crushed and then destemmed. They ferment for 3 to 4 days, with the skins, and are regularly immersed by remounting in order to obtain more color and aromas. The skins are then separated from the must and a grape brandy with 77% v/v is added in order to obtain a wine with 20% alcohol and 90 to 110 g/l of the grape’s own reducing sugar. The wine will age in small tuns and wooden casks (barrels and kegs).
