Quinta da Mariposa Reserva, Dão, Portugal, 2016


The grapes were harvested manually into small 20kg boxes, with a pre-selection in the vineyard. The composition of the blend varies with the yields of each variety in the plot. After total destemming the grapes go to a traditional granite “lagar”, where they macerate for about 48 hours, under temperature control. The fermentation is slow, under controlled temperature, and the assemblies are made by foot treading. This wine is aged for 1 year in used French oak barrels of 225 and 500L.
