Using traditional Porto Wine technology, this wine was vinified at Quinta do Seixo. The grapes were both from Quinta do Seixo and Quinta do Vau. After a careful selection, the grapes were subject to soft-crushing and destemming before undergoing a very intense maceration, during alcoholic fermentation, via treading in granite lagares at automatically-controlled temperatures.

After the harvest, the wine remained in the Douro region, where it was subject to its first racking during the winter. The following spring, it was moved to Vila Nova de Gaia, where it started the traditional aging process in oak casks. The final lot was obtained only further to rigorous selection of the wines, only those of the highest quality being used.Storage
This wine can be consumed immediately, but will benefit from a growing complexity if aged for a prolonged period in the bottle. Estimated to reach its peak in roughly its 15th year, this wine has the 20-25 year longevity of a 'vintage', after which it will maintain the great qualities of a "cellar wine".
Over time, a natural sediment will form in the bottle, which should be opened with care and decanted for best results when it has been stored for some years. It is a surprising wine that will benefit from being opened some time prior to consumption. Serve at between 16°C-18°C.Enjoy
Its elegant and complex profile combines wonderfully with strong cheeses.
