Vineyards & Viticulture
The Coche comes from vineyards with over 80-year-old vines growing in mica-schist soils at an altitude of around 600m above sea level, primarily situated on the right side of the Douro River.
Harvest & Vinification
Grapes are manually harvested, carefully sorted in the vineyards, then being transported to the cellar in 25 kg boxes in a temperature-controlled truck. During the night, the grapes are pressed gently and the must left to settle for approximately 48 hours. Fermentation takes place in French oak barrels (François Frères) of 228 L and 550 L (50% new), then aged 12 months during which it also goes through partial malolactic fermentation.
