 264,95 incl. BTW

Op voorraad

GRAPE VARIETIES: Boal

VINEYARDS AND VINIFICATION: Grapes from various quality vineyards from São Vicente e Prazeres were used. Grapes were pressed in a pneumatic press. Arresting of fermentation takes place at the desired degree of sweetness by adding vinic alcohol. (96%) This wine was aged in casks of French oak in the traditional “Canteiro” system.

MATURATION & BOTTLING: Bottled for the first time in 2001, this 1978 boal was not as concentrated and acidic as it is now that I bottled it for the third time. It aged in casks until 2008 when I decided to transfer all of it into 60 litre demijohns. By doing so I avoided excessive concentration thus maintaining the balance between sugar and acidity which I found to be the ideal in this wine. We bottled 618 units of 750ml all individually numbered.
