Characterized by very favorable growing season conditions and led to one of the best vintages in recent years. Cold and dry winter, warm and dry summer, free of heat waves, dry September.
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 May 2016.
Toasty oak competing with tropical notes of lime and papaya and fresh mint. Elegant and intense,
with underlying acidity and a persistent finish.
