Varieties: Grape Varietal: 80% Verdelho e 20% Arinto
Identity: Gastronomic oaked white wine that results from the best grapes and french oak barrels.
Denomination: Vinho Regional Alentejano
Viticulture: All our grapes come from the highest quality vineyards of the Alentejo region, south of Portugal. The agriculture is sustainable, the production is controlled and quality is improved by removing secondary branches and pruning bunches. The vineyards are grown on very poor soil of schist or granite origin, naturally producing very concentrated grapes. The aromatic profile is further enhanced by cultural practices such as defoliation, dawning and weeding of green curls.
Vinification: All bunches are inspected for quality on a sorting table before they are gently whole-cluster pressed at low temperature. Suspended solids are allowed to settle naturally before fermenting 100% of the juice at 12ºC in 50% new French oak barrels. Malolactic fermentation is permitted in 10% of barrels. Ageing for 12 months, 100% in barrel with regime of frequent lees stirring.
