VINIFICATION: Wines that go into 'Canteiro' are aged in barrels, usually on the upper floors of the cellars, where the temperature is higher, for a period of two years. This
gives rise to a type of oxidative ageing in barrels. Canteiro' wines can only be marketed after a minimum of three years. Madeira is the only wine that is heated, to simulate
the effects of the old round trips from the Orient.After harvesting the wines are boosted to 17-20% with wine alcohol, and stored in 'estufas', tanks heated to 45°C for no less
than 3 months. They are then left to cool slowly at room temperature and left to rest for several years.
