As Sortes is made from old vines that are located within six sortes in the northern end of the Bibei Valley that were planted in the late 1970s and early 1980s. These parcels are worked organically with some elements of biodynamics as well. The grapes are fermented and aged in mostly used 500 L oak barrels for 8 months. Compared to the Louro, this is a wine that stands up tall in its refinement and presence on the palate, but also shows some added complexity and aromatic development with aeration or additional time in bottle.
