Winemaking The winemaking philosophy is focused on seeking the expression of the terroir of Serra da Estrela. As such, no oenological product was used except for very low doses of sulphur. The alcoholic fermentation took place naturally with the indigenous yeasts in the wine press. Little extraction was sought, working by "infusion" in search of the elegance and finesse characteristic of the region. The fermentation temperature was regulated with ice bags and the cold of the mountain nights.
The wine was then transferred to used barrels, where it underwent malolactic fermentation until the following spring and aged for 18 months.
Bottling took place in August 2019. It then aged in bottle for a further 2 years and was released to the market 4 years after the harvest.
Aging 18 months in 500L Austrian oak barrels.
Capacity 750 ml
Volume Alcohol by Volume: 14%
Temperature 16ºC - 18ºC
Harmonizations Cod dishes, lamb, red meats and white meats.

Since 2010 António Madeira, a Portuguese-descendant Frenchman with family roots in Dão, Serra da Estrela, has been researching and growing old vines located in special places. With passion, dedication and precision, applying methods that are respectful for the life of the soil and that facilitate the expression of the terroir in the wines. It does not use herbicides and works the soils manually with hoes and the help of a horse.
The philosophy of winemaking is focused on the search for the expression of the terroir of the Serra da Estrela, using no oenological product other than sulphurous.
