Monte São Sebastião Grande Reserva red wine is the result of an old vineyard where Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca varieties predominate.
Vinification took place from the third week until the end of September. Ripening was verified in August and September.
The harvested grapes are immediately processed, thus inhibiting high phenolic extraction.
The grapes are hand picked and arrive at the winery in 20 kg plastic boxes.
Vinification took place in fermentation tanks at a temperature of 25°C to 28°C to extract the primary fruit aromas and round, sweet tannins.
Malolactic fermentation occurred in November 2014.
The wine was aged for a period of 15 months in new French oak barrels. This was followed by a 12-month bottle ageing period.
Grapes: Touriga Nacional (70%) and Touriga Franca (30%)
