The grape varieties are harvested separately, first Aragonez at the beginning of September, then Trincadeira and at the end of September the Cabernet Sauvignon is harvested. Fermentation took place in stainless steel vats with temperature control for a week, followed by a period of post-fermentative maceration that lasted for another 15 days. After this period the wine was matured in French oak barrels for 12 months. At the end of the ageing the final batch of wine was blended and bottled, followed by a ageing in bottle that goes from 6 months.
