Characteristics of Alma de Reboreda
This toasted wine of Ribeiro is a kind of traditional Ribeiro wine very popular in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century.
It is a sweet white wine made of grapes manually harvested and very carefully selected. The grapes are immediately moved to the passerillage section where they are hung cluster by cluster without touching each other. This process takes three months during which every 15 days moldy grapes are cleaned in order to prevent the spread of rottenness. After being dryed, grapes are taken to the winery where, after a soft crushing, they are very gently pressed. The must obtained was brought to the warehouse where after a soft crumpled very gently pressed. The must obtained stays in Allier French oak barrels for fermentation over a year. It is subsequently decanted and put into the barrels again where it rests on fine lees for a minimum of 18 months. After that, the wine has already completed a period of at least 3 years in the barrels. Finally, the wine stays in the bottle at least for three months.
Very limited production: 1,000 numbered bottles.

La Treixadura has established itself as the prominent variety of the Ribeiro. The variety has become irreplaceable in the region, responsible for the fame achieved by the region's wines, as well as their glorious past. It is a well planted strain, vigorous, fairly resistant to disease, with middle productivity and late maturing, which helps produce wines with a spectacular and personal character through the variety, full of freshness and flavour in the mouth, and added mystery.
