Verdelho produces a wine must with moderated sugar levels, noticeable acidity and produces a medium- dry style of Madeira wine. This wine, has the category of Colheita. The Ageing – “Canteiro” method. The maturation occurred in the cellars, in which the wine aged in American oak casks in the warm high attic floors of the lodge. The art of finding the right balance between concentration and the freshness of the wine lies in the winemaker’s decision when to transfer the wine to the lower cooler north facing floors of the lodge.
