Varieties: Castelão (Periquita), Trincadeira (Tinta Amarela), Aragonez (Tempranillo)
Identity: A “non vintage” Rosé that blends the youth and freshness of the youngest vintages with the complexity of lees ageing, that only older vintages can give. It is refined and complex, without ever loosing the simplicity and fresh- ness that makes a great Rosé.
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. 55% drained juice and 45% whole bunch pressing.
