Notes from Savio Soares Selections:
"From 15 and 85 year old vines planted to 12 hectares of granitic soils all grapes are handpicked from fifteen hectares of granite-heavy soils. All grapes are hand-harvested and vineyard sorted at the same time in mid-to-late September, then destemmed and allowed to spontaneously ferment with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tanks (5000-11000L) for 1-2 weeks. The wine spends its entire time on the lees and is aged in stainless steel and 20% used French oak barrels (500L). Aging lasts in oak for 9 months and in stainless steel for more than 2 years. Not filtered."
