Boina 2016 Red
Grapes came from 3 different plots, all of them more than 60 years old. The first one is located in the North of Douro Superior in a transition zone between schist and granite at 600m of altitude, facing the North. The other 2 plots are located in Cima Corgo, on schist soils, at 300m of altitude with a South/West exposure.
Vinification and Aging
Grapes were carefully selected in the vineyards and harvested by hand. They were partially destemmed (80%) and crushed, followed by 2 days of cold-soaking. Fermented with indigenous yeast in Granitic Lagares and foot-trodden for 4 hours, with very gentle pump-over´s after that to prevent too much extraction. Stage for 14 months in stainless steel vats (95%) and in used French Oak Barrels (5%).
Total Acidity: 5.1 (g/L)
