Bojo do Luar - “ Do Bojo” Portugal Bastardo 2021 (750ml)


| /

Produced from 100% Bastardo grapes sourced from Quinta do Poldrado in the Trás-os-Montes region, on the margins of the Tâmega River, near the town of Vidago. The harvest took place on September 7th, early in the morning and the grapes were packed in 25kg boxes and trucked to Bojo do Luar cellar 100km away. Upon arrival in the cellar the grapes were destemmed (100%) and transferred to 1,500 liter “talhas” (amphoras) to start fermentation and maceration. At this moment ground chestnut ower was added (500g/1000 L) and mixed into the mass. The fermentation with a temperature controlled at 17º Celsius lasted for three weeks and then pressed after four weeks of maceration, to return to the “talhas” for aging until July. Bottled with the addition of 25mlg of SO2.
