This wine is produced from purchased grapes from vineyards between 10 and 40 years old. Wine maker, Enrique Pineiro works with around 30 small growers in the Val do Salnes sub-region of Rias Baixas, some with holdings as small as half a hectare. All of the fruit for this wine is hand harvested in small boxes. After cluster sorting the grapes are whole-cluster pressed in a pneumatic press, followed by settling of the must with dry ice. The wine was fermented at 64° F in stainless steel tank. The wine does not undergo malolactic fermentation. Aged for almost 2 months on fine lees.
