Winter rainfall was plentiful, followed by an excellent summer growing season , mild for Alentejan standards. An early harvest with a rapid end, due to the early arrival of September rains.
Made entirely from Alvarinho grapes, grown sustainably in our own vineyards on the Alentejan west coast, 3 km from the Atlantic Ocean. Harvested during the cool hours of the early morning, the grapes were destemmed and pressed, followed by settling at low temperatures for 24 hours. Fermented at controlled temperatures in tanks for 15 days and matured on fine lees, with regular stirring. Fined, filtered and bottled to maintain its clean, crisp flavours. Partially barrel aged and then blended to give balanced varietal fruit and oak complexity. Bottled, filtered in April 2015.
Intense fruit aromas (citrus and peach) with a nice refreshing acidity.
