The Story: The original Fat Duck was actually a lonely Canada goose that once made its home in our winery, Quinta da Fonte Bela. It had lost its way or perhaps decided it liked our excellent local food and wine; either way it thrived and suited its affectionate nickname.

Classic fermentation method in stainless steel vats, with destemming and pre fermentative skin contact followed of the application of dry yeasts. Fermentation up to 30º C in the first 2/3, and lowering down to 20º C during the last 1/3. During the whole fermentative process, pumping over 2 times per day, using each time half of the volume contained in the vat. After the alcoholic fermentation, the cap is plunged for 30 days, and during that period, extraction of the gentle tannins is conducted, along with the malolactic fermentation and the natural stabilization of the wine.
The wine ages in bottle during 1 month after bottling.
