Alabastro Reserva 2018 was produced from the grapes, Aragonez, Trincadeira and Alicant Bouschet from different vineyards in Alentejo. The Aragonez and Trincadeira are produced in Quinta da Terrugem (Borba) and the Alicante Bouschet is produced in Barranco, nearby Redondo, a region dominated by schist soils with a low productions per hectare. Alabastro Reserva is produced in the new and modern winery of Quinta do Carmo at Estremoz. The grapes are separately vinified in stainless steel tanks with controlled temperature, to preserve the fruity aromas, followed by a short maceration. Each grape variety stays for 9 months in oak barrels. After that period, the final lot is produced and bottled.
