Vinification

Hand picked grapes. Cold fermentation technology on reductive environment, with controlled temperature at about 16ºC. Very gentle crushing and pressing in an inert atmosphere to preserve all the aromatic potential of grapes. We made a great effort that all the pre-fermentation operations were carried out with great accuracy to preserve the intrinsic quality of the wine.

Aging

4 months in stainless steel vats

Tasting Notes

Extremely fresh and mineral aroma, citrus and floral notes very typical of Douro white wines. Fresh and full bodied on the palate.

Serve with grilled fatty fish, shellfish, sushi and Italian cuisine.
