The grapes that origin this wine came from the vineyards of Quinta de Pancas located in Alenquer. The vineyards are spread on a chain of hills and valleys protected by “Montejunto” mountains . The soils are fine textured, neutral and clay-calcareous. The climate is Mediterranean with Atlantic influence. The Syrah came from the plots 8 and 23.
The grapes were harvested on the 1st and 2nd October 2017 and followed to the winery. Here they were vinified with a short cold maceration and fermented at a controlled temperature of 28 ° C for 10 days with a daily regimen of "delastage“ and manual pump-over.
