in the cellar : Grapes were harvested between 25 – 26ºB, destalked and juice and skins were pumped into open fermentation tanks. After fermentation has started, skins tend to rise to the top and were pushed down and mixed with the juice, approximately four times per day. After fermenting down 13ºB, juice and skins were separated and 80 vol % brandy spirit was added to the juice. Skins were pressed and all the pressed juice was added. The wine was now fortified to an alcohol of between 17.5 - 18.5 vol %. After two weeks the Port was racked and pumped to a clean tank. The Port was then transferred to 500 l casks to mature for a period of 18 months before bottling.
