Aveleda selected the Loureiro, Trajadura and Arinto grapes from the best vineyards in the region. When the ideal maturation stage is reached, the grapes are brought to Aveleda where they are cooled before being pressed at low pressure. The fermentation, in stainless steel tanks, is carefully controlled at temperatures of 16-18ºC. Finally, the wine is filtered and cold-stabilized before being bottled.
